Yes, here people showed some level of commitment.
I'd love the help, but unfortunately don't have time to do bring a lot of

But I think the steps to be taken are:

1 - Install some software that help maintaining the site (forrest as all the
other apache project? a .net software like screwturn wiki?) Or can it just
be hosted on Google Code/CodePlex/Github and just linked from the Apache
2 - Clean the site up a bit, add links to documentation and releases and the
usual stuff you need to have in a project site
3 - Do an official release of 2.9.2
4 - Setup a public CI environment (I think CodeBetter TeamCity would be a
great place to put it)
5 - Decide the future strategy of the project: just line-by-line port with
Java API, line-by-line port with .NET wrapper for "nicer" API, or anything
6 - Add some explanation how the project is developed: if a Java to C# port
is done, explain how and how to contribute
6 - Target the latest Lucene Java available version
