This is a good point... it is unfortunate that the large healthy
community of java-user/dev indeed does tend to draw discussions away
from its "offshots".  Much like most acorns dropping from a large
healthy oak tree will fail to grow because they get no sun.

EG you recently posted about Matcher, to lucy-dev.  You then posted to
java-dev, pointing to that post (which was a great idea).  I pondered
whether to respond via java-dev or lucy-dev.  I knew java-dev would
get more discussion, but I also really, really want Lucy to grow &
succeed, so I responded on lucy-dev.  But then the discussion stopped.

I do think these discussions (and it's not just LUCENE-1483, there
were a number of other issues & just plain discussions on java-dev) do
indeed "count" as good Lucy activity.
