Hi Otis,

I had a feeling Pasha wouldn't be enthausiastic about continuing or 
supporting a open version of Lucene. Some guys have gathered around 
http://sourceforge.net/projects/dotlucene to continue the effort for the 
.NET port.

I started of with the 1.3-rc3-001 version (the last zip we had) and added 
some missing features and thought that I had completed the 1.3-final. It 
shows like we are missing some sorting code from the java version. Because 
we are new at maintaining this piece of code we still need to do some 
checking about the completeness of the software (and not only using the 
diffs of the java version to update the .NET port). But we will have a new 
version soon (the '1.3 final' compiles and runs all unit tests succesfully, 
files from the .jj files have been generated from the original .jj files to 
C#).

As you see, some work has been done, some more needs to be done. How about 
the idea of Doug to bring the lucene-related projects (as Lucene.Net) under 
the Jakarta umbrella ? I liked that one.

Yussef
