Subject Re: Geonames/spatial stuff usable in 3.5?

(sorry for cross post -- if you are only interested in spatial portion, head
over to discuss on sis-dev@)

Hi Javi,

Ultimately I'd love these patches to be applied to Solr trunk, or to the
current 3.x stable branch. At the time I posted there was little interest
in doing that and rather than have those patches sit, I pushed them out
to a Github repository here:

Jan H. was pinging me before and looked like he had some interest
last October I think but I'm not sure anything came of it. Honestly, at
the time I went through a ton of effort to get the patches commit ready,
but I'd be willing to try again.

Theoretically some of those patches should be pushed out to Apache
SIS (e.g., the generic reader/loader), and then it would
be great to integrate some of the work with SIS and Lucene/Solr. If you're
interested, would be happy to chat with you on
about it.
