Subject Re: lucene.net no more?

Hello,

I've contacted Pasha (Lucene.Net developer) and while he said one could
continue Lucene.Net development (code was released under ASL), he
didn't show any interest in helping me locate the latest version of the
sources. :(

I am now wondering if there is anyone on lucene-dev list interested in
taking over Lucene.Net development?  The latest sources are here:
http://lucenedotnet.wz.cz/.

Otis
P.S.
Related blog entry from Aaron Johnson:

P.P.S.
If nobody here is interested, I'll take this to lucene-user - larger
audience.
