I prefer to leverage the wiki for this type of information for a number 
of reasons.  It is self-maintaining, not requiring a committer to take 
time out to commit changes and update the website.  We have e-mail 
notification of wiki modifications and thus we already have monitoring. 
  There are many cases when using Lucene when the answer is "it depends" 
(such as the filtering question that just came up).  Having a wiki 
"whiteboard" for these scenarios allows for a broader perspective.
