I don't claim that this is spam, but more and more of the Wiki "PoweredBy" 
links look like someone just wants a link from the Lucene project, 
probably to boost their Google ranking. We cannot tell whether these 
people really use Lucene at all, or if they use some blogging software 
which in turn uses Lucene (in that case it wouldn't make sense to link 
them from our page either).

My suggestion would be that we only accept links if people use Lucene 
directly (not via a software that has a Lucene-based search anyway) and 
that they put a link to Lucene on their imprint/contact page or on the 
search result page. On the other hand, while the page above is harmless, I 
guess it's not necessarily something Apache Lucene needs to be associated 

Any suggestions?
