Thiago - first, we need to follow Apache procedures regarding  
software grants:


This entails us getting approval from the Lucene PMC to bring this  
code in.  What we need to demonstrate is a viable community.  So  
while I understand your situation of not having time, its best not to  
use that verbiage when trying to bring code to Apache.  What we want  
is a healthy community, not a dumping ground of code for folks  
without enough time.

I recommend you bring this topic up to your acts_as_solr e-mail list  
and have the folks interested in the future of that plugin to join  
this e-mail list and show support for this move.

Again, I'm out of commission for a couple more weeks but can get back  
into this in more detail soon.
