Subject Re: Would Like to contribute to Lucene
Date Sat, 28 Mar 2015 18:31:16 GMT
that's a mirror, the "source of truth" is:

svn checkout https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/lucene/dev/trunk

See:
http://wiki.apache.org/solr/HowToContribute

for lots of pointers on how to check things out, compile, test, set up
an IDE (Eclipse, IntelliJ, Netbeans) etc.

Good luck!
Erick
