+=== Lucene Status Report: Sept, 2010 ===
+Simon Willnauer and Koji Sekiguchi were added to the PMC. 
+This brings our total to 17 PMC members from 12 different 
+companies, spanning the globe. The flagship Lucene/Solr
+has 26 total committers from 20 different companies, again
+spanning the globe.
+    * Project Naming And Descriptions : 
+      We believe this is complete, but are still reviewing.
+    * Website Navigation Links : navbar links included, link to included
+      Likely complete, but under review.
+    * Trademark Attributions : attribution for all ASF marks included in footers, etc.
+      The main TLP site is converted, subproject sites have not.  
+    * Logos and Graphics : include TM, use consistent product logo on your site
+      In progress.  Some have been converted to have TM, some not.  We don't 
+      seem to have ready volunteers on the graphical front, so it is slower
+      than we'd like
+    * Project Metadata : DOAP file checkedin and up to date
+      Done
+Also, we are beginning the migration to the new ASF CMS, so may push
+some of this work to that process so as to not have to do it twice.
+The Lucene.NET subproject community has
+been stagnating for some time now and the PMC has stepped in and 
+asked the community to respond to growing concerns about the 
+viability of the community.  See
+for the first thread in a very long discussion.  At some point,
+we expect Lucene.NET will either apply to be a TLP or apply for
+the Attic (it is clear that the current PMC is not the appropriate place
+for it despite the common name since most of us are not .NET users)
+and fork off somewhere else under a different name.
+See the Lucene.NET section below for more details.  We do not
+believe there is any Board action required at this point, but
+there likely will be in the not too distant future once the 
+community has decided on their future direction.
+Lucene Java is a search-engine toolkit and Solr is a search server
+built on top of Lucene. The community is very active.
+The community has just released Lucene 2.9.4 and 3.0.3 and is 
+actively working on future releases.
+Steven Rowe was added as a committer this quarter.
+Lucene.NET is a .NET based port of Lucene Java. 
+Open Relevance Project
+The Open Relevance Project is a project aimed at providing Lucene
+and others tools for judging the quality of search and machine
+learning approaches.  The community is not very active, but
+we don't expect it to be very high volume either as it is a niche
+area.  Having said that, we have discussed if it might be better
+served as simply being a part of Lucene/Solr.  
+PyLucene is a Python integration of Lucene Java.  Development is
+almost entirely an automated port, so this project will never
+require a lot of developers.  The user community is active.
