Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache Tika 0.4 Release Candidate 2
Date Wed, 15 Jul 2009 13:00:44 GMT
1. When I download and run "mvn compile" or "mvn test" from the top  
directory, I get:
1) org.apache.tika:tika-core:jar:0.4

   Try downloading the file manually from the project website.

   Then, install it using the command:
       mvn install:install-file -DgroupId=org.apache.tika - 
DartifactId=tika-core -Dversion=0.4 -Dpackaging=jar -Dfile=/path/to/file

   Alternatively, if you host your own repository you can deploy the  
file there:
       mvn deploy:deploy-file -DgroupId=org.apache.tika - 
DartifactId=tika-core -Dversion=0.4 -Dpackaging=jar -Dfile=/path/to/ 
file -Durl=[url] -DrepositoryId=[id]

   Path to dependency:
         1) org.apache.tika:tika-parsers:bundle:0.4
         2) org.apache.tika:tika-core:jar:0.4

1 required artifact is missing.

Not a show stopper, but not exactly a good out of the box experience,  
especially given reading READMEs is not likely to happen.

Note, this, to me, is a big Maven problem and we have the same issue  
over in Mahout.  How is it that Maven can get all the other  
dependencies, but it isn't smart enough to know when a dependency is  
in a local module?  Someone once pointed me at a means to make sure  
module dependencies build first, but I've never implemented it.

2. While not required, it would be good to publish your public key on  
a key server such as and also to get your  
key signed by someone else at the ASF.

3. Did something change such that CONTENT_LANGUAGE is now not being  
set for HTML?  We have a test in Solr that looks for that attribute,  
and it was passing with 0.3 but is now not passing in 0.4.

As of now, +0 due to #3 above.
