Subject Re: making a contribution

This is great news!

Please attach your new files to a new Bugzilla issue for Lucene (see 
Jakarta website for details) and either submit a 'cvs diff -u' patch 
file along with the issue or just describe what constructor needed to 
be opened up to public in the issue text.

Where your contribution would ultimately reside is unclear.  At the 
very least, it can live in the sandbox if you are ok with making it 
Apache Software License.
