Subject RE: Upgrade to Lucene 4 ?
Date Wed, 09 Oct 2013 07:07:29 GMT
Hi Cédric,

most of the development effort currently goes into Apache
Oak, which will replace Jackrabbit 2.x at some point. This means
Jackrabbit 2.x is pretty much in maintenance mode.

I don't want to discourage you from doing this, but I will probably
not have the time to help on this...

Regards
 Marcel
