Well, I suspect he's asking on this list because in the process of
shutting down lucene4c I put a "hey, ask on general@incubator if you
want to get this project started again" notice on the project's web
site, mainly because I was planning on turning off the lucene4c
mailing lists because at this point all they do is generate moderation
requests for spam.

As for contributing to it, the lists are still there (haven't gotten
around to killing them off yet), so if you want to start sending in
patches I may be able to find time to review and apply them.  If you
can do that a few times you'll likely get commit access, and then you
can keep the project going.  I do warn you though, there are literally
no other people working on the project right now, and I have limited
time to review and apply changes.  You might have better luck
investigating the Lucy project, as it has somewhat similar goals and
is more active.
