Subject kick-start: Lucene to top-level project
Date Fri, 10 Dec 2004 20:18:38 GMT
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?
