Subject [Lucy Wiki] Update of "LucyIncubatorProposal" by PeterKarman
Date Mon, 28 Jun 2010 14:36:58 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Lucy Wiki" for change notification.

The "LucyIncubatorProposal" page has been changed by PeterKarman.


  This process of renewal is vital to the long term health of Apache projects. This is the
right place to demonstrate that this process is understood by the proposers. Example (OFBiz):
OFBiz was originally created by David E. Jones and Andy Zeneski in May 2001. The project now
has committers and users from around the world. The newer committers of the project joined
in subsequent years by initially submitting patches, then having commit privileges for some
of the applications, and then privileges over a larger range of applications... Example (Beehive):
We plan to do everything possible to encourage an environment that supports a meritocracy.
One of the lessons that the XMLBeans committers have learned is that meritocracies don't just
evolve from good intentions; they require actively asking the community for help, listing/specifying
the work that needs to be done, and keeping track of and encouraging members of the community
who make any contributions...
  === Community ===
- Apache is interested only in communities.
+ Lucy currently has a small community, many members of which originated in the KinoSearch
- Candidates should start with a community and have the potential to grow and renew this community
by attracting new users and developers. Explain how the proposal fits this vision. Example
(Beehive): BEA has been building a community around predecessors to this framework for the
last two years. There is currently an active newsgroup that should help us build a new community
at Apache... Example (WebWork2): The WebWork 2 community has a strong following with active
mailing lists and forums... Example (WADI): The need for a full service clustering and caching
component in the open source is tremendous as its use can be applied in many areas, thus providing
the potential for an incredibly large community...
+ Lucy's chief challenge is growing its community, which it hopes to achieve through efforts
in two areas: reaching a 1.0 release, and actively reaching out to its target audience, users
and developers in the dynamic language communities who want a fast, scalable full-text search
solution in their native language.
  === Core Developers ===
  Apache is composed of individuals.
