So I started looking at the wiki, but I'm not sure whether it contains all the info I need.

We don't have a lot of design documents and if there are any they
might be most likely outdated. I think the best documentation is the
code and the people who have written it. If you wanna dive into lucene
you should ask as many questions you need to ask and get all the info
out of us. We are usually around every day depending on the timezones
though so you either go and write emails or you join our IRC channel
#lucene on freenode (
Is there anything particular that you are interested in like indexing,
search, analysis etc?
