Subject RE: time for 1.3 release?

Yes. That's what I was proposing. And it's true - the stop word lists in
Snowball are quite good. I  did offer wordlists for some languages that
weren't complete to Martin (Porter) - I don't know if they are included
or not. In any case, this was just to confirm their existence. In the
test cases I had built for my earlier Snowball-Lucene integration, I did
use these lists for the analyzers and also made sure to exclude them
from the tests (since the analyzer would remove them...)

be added to the core Lucene jar and release.  Is that right?

I don't have a problem with this.  Do others?

The Javadoc should probably also include a pointer to:

And I just noticed that Snowball has stop lists for most of the 
languages too.  It would be good for the analyzer to use these too, at 
least as an option.

I can probably make these changes in the next week or so.
