Subject [Lucy Wiki] Update of "LucyIncubatorProposal" by MarvinHumphrey

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 MarvinHumphrey.
The comment on this change is: Set Initial Goals..


  Explains why this project needs to exist and why should it be adopted by Apache. This is
the right place for discursive material. Example (Beehive): There is a strong need for a cohesive,
easy-to-use programming model for building J2EE applications. Developers new to Java are forced
to learn a myriad of APIs just to build simple applications; advanced J2EE developers are
forced to write tedious plumbing code; and tools authors are limited in what they can do to
simplify the experience due to the underlying complexity.
  == Initial Goals ==
+  * Make a 1.0 stable release as quickly as possible.
+  * Concentrate on community expansion thereafter.
- A complex proposal (involving multiple existing code bases, for example) may cause concerns
about its practicality. A good way to address these concerns is to create a plan that demonstrates
the proposal is feasible and has been carefully thought through.
- Many projects will not need this section. Example (Heraldry): * Expansion of Yadis and OpenID
libraries into additional languages beyond the existing Python, Ruby, Perl, and PHP libraries
* OpenID authentication specification revision to fix known security considerations, investigate
compatibility with the DIX IETF proposal, describe Yadis integration, and allow either an
URL or XRI be used as the End User's Identifier ...
  == Current Status ==
   * Currently a Lucene subproject.
