Subject Re: kick-start: Lucene to top-level project

Forgive me for asking a stupid question, but why?  Sounds like a fair amount of work is involved.
 What is the benefit of making Lucene a "top-level Apache project"?  



PS: Heck, just to prove it's probably a dumb question, I still don't even understand either
the technical or organizational relationship(s) between Lucene and Nutch.

  Subject: kick-start: Lucene to top-level project

  The idea of creating a new top-level Apache project, namely, has been floating around for a while.  The idea is 
  to bring Lucene under this new umbrella, along with incubating Nutch 
  through the standard Apache incubation process with it aimed at coming 
  under this same top-level project too.

  This message is to kick-start this process in a more formal manner.

  Creating a new top-level project to house Lucene, and the effort to 
  incubate Nutch can occur in parallel, I believe.  Nutch will follow the 
  path outlined here:

  The creation of the top-level project has been somewhat outlined here:

  Most of the effort is administrative, such as selecting a Chair, PMC 
  members, and putting together a plan of action.  Along with this move, 
  we should also consider switching to Subversion and migrating from 
  Bugzilla to JIRA.

  Are there any folks opposed to these plans?

  I personally am happy to champion this effort and I will do what I can 
  within the time constraints of the rest of my life.  What we need are 
  other volunteers willing to assist with these efforts.  First we need 
  to write the proposals, choose the initial PMC members and Chair (who I 
  assume should be his majesty Doug, if he's willing to be in that role), 
  and deal with the flurry of e-mails on the Jakarta PMC e-mail list.

  More technical effort will be needed to manage the publishing of the 
  website - it would be nice to overhaul the Lucene site - manage the 
  code repositories, and automate the bulk of the release process so that 
  we can simply click and release.

  What tasks have I overlooked?

  Discussion?  Suggestions?
