Subject Re: Lucene - Dynamo glue class -- How to make it available to users?
Date Wed, 20 Feb 2002 15:08:30 GMT
Otis,

I have mixed feelings on this particular subject because of experience as an
Ant committer.  Ant has taken in a lot of tasks that burdens the committers
with maintenance issues and backwards compatibility support.  But Ant is
also useless without tasks.

Lucene doesn't have quite the burden of maintaining backwards compatibility
on such extensions as Ant does (I don't think), but certainly the analogy
applies in general.  Lucene as an API is great, but you need the "glue" to
really make it useful.

I think a 'contrib' area maintained in Jakarta's Lucene repository would be
a good thing, with any such disclaimers needed to make it understood that
the Lucene committers will do their best to keep them maintained but its not
a priority.

    Erik
