I attempted to check in this modification...

    Lucy is a loose C port of Lucene targeted at dynamic language bindings.
    The pace of development has picked up this year, and a significant
    milestone was achieved with the completion of the core object model.  We
    are working agressively towards alpha release.

However, the commit failed, I believe because I don't have commit rights to
that subdirectory.

My take on this is: if we build it, they will come.  I think it will be
challenging to attract developers until we have a real release -- so to expand
the community, we should work to make that release as soon as we can.
