Subject [Lucene-java Wiki] Update of "lucene.Net" by PrescottNasser
Date Fri, 04 Feb 2011 19:01:24 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Lucene-java Wiki" for change notification.

The "lucene.Net" page has been changed by PrescottNasser.


  Lucene.Net has three aims. First, it will maintain the existing line-by-line port from Java
to C#, fully automating and commoditizing the process such that the project can easily synchronize
with the Java Lucene release schedule. Second, it will be a high-performance C# search engine
library. Third, it will maximize its usability and power when used within the .NET runtime.
To that end, it will present a highly idiomatic, carefully tailored API that takes advantage
of many of the special features of the .NET runtime.

+ === Community ===
+ There is already a well established, active and vibrant community surrounding the Lucene.Net
project. This is primarily a users community, as the previous committers have not engaged
the user community to find or leverage would-be contributors. There is a lot of talent available
in the community to this end and many people have come forth offering their time as contributors.
+ There are a number of well established and significant .NET open source projects which are
widely used by the larger .NET community which depend on Lucene.Net. There are also countless
commercial products which use, and are dependent on this project. The mailing lists are active
with numerous community members both asking and answering technical questions. The status
and activities of the project are watched closely by the larger .NET development community
and regularly commented on in blogs and other discussion forums.
+ Because of the size of the community and the fact that it's audience is largely developers,
finding new committers over time should remain an easy task. The user base is also constantly
growing, because Lucene.Net is one of the very few high quality products in this space (either
commercial or open source). The ability to index and search content is an essential part of
many web-based applications which are developed on the .NET framework, and Lucene.Net is widely
used to support that scenario. This will only grow with time.
