Subject Re: Development plans for Lucene?

Hi Peter,
As you know, Apache projects are based on contributions from other 

I think the best way to add features that you want are to make the 
changes and submit them to the developers list. As you become more 
active, I'm sure that someone will sponsor you for full development 

There are lots of changes going on right now with Lucene, but the core 
API will probably not be changing much since it has been shown to be a 
mature, proven project. Most of the contributions right now are in the 
lucene-sandbox area. These are additions on top of the Lucene API to 
either extend the functionality or make it easier to access.

Most of the questions from user are how to questions, not feature 
requests. What functionality are specifically talking about?
