you will find attached the source files for the FrenchAnalyzer, packaged in

I don't know if it's a good idea to post it to the list but, as someone else
here said
"I don't have CVS access and prefer the safety of not having it :)", so I
apologize for the bad etiquette ;=)

Should it be part of the core or not ? I honestly don't know, and even if I
will made myself available for any correction/enhancement, I let you guys
come to your own decision about it.

I just thought that it could be convenient to have it bundled for people
building french related project, but may be you could have a special
"outside module" directory structure for other language-related stemmers and
mark them as "non supported", "use it at your own risk", etc...

As long as the source code is available, I think that people will always be
glad to have these modules, if only as a base code for enhancement.

In some remote place of the world, you never know, but someone may be using
these "miscellaneous languages" :))

Yes, I think this would be a nice addition to Lucene.  Could you please
send it?

Also, a lady who worked on a Finish stemmer sent her code a while back.
 I doubt many people on the list speak Finish and can test the code, so
I suggest that we add it to the distribution, let people try it, and
report problems if there are any.

Hm, now that I think about it, should language-components that are
submitted by people be a part of the Lucene core?
What happens if there is a bug in that code?  The original submitter
may not be interested in fixing it and/or sending patches, etc. and
other Lucene developers may not know the code/language.
