Subject Participating in GSoC'11 with Lucene
Date Sat, 12 Mar 2011 16:32:13 GMT
Hi developers,

I'm a graduate student from National University of Singapore, majoring in
Computer Science. The enthusiasm of open source and information retrieval
drives me to participate in GSoC'11 with your community. I first got to know
Lucene when I was in a software engineer intern in IBM, working on Lotus

Now I've already checked out the source code and successfully built it
locally. Meanwhile, I begin to read through the Jira issues, and are more
interested in Issue 2308, 2309 and 2621, which seem to be the refactoring
tasks (Please correct me if I'm wrong). My personal feeling is that these
tasks will be more appropriate for a beginner to get in. Moreover, I think
to start with such a big project, it is more efficient to read through the
discussion on Jira to understand the problem, and then dive into the related
code with the problem kept in mind. What is your opinion? I'm looking
forward to your guidance.
