I have some reservations, but nothing important enough to change the 
vote. Nutch uses Tika mainly as a mime-type detection library, so I'm 
not that familiar with its format conversion functionality (the 
parsers). However, if Tika becomes a Lucene sub-project, AND if the 
documentation gets better (as opposed to nearly non-existent :) ) then I 
think this project could play an important role in Nutch - we could then 
merge the content parsers in Nutch and Tika into a common code base in 
Tika, thus increasing reuse and decreasing maintenance costs.
