Are you looking for on-site people, or are you willing to outsource?
If the latter, we would be interested. Srijan Technologies
(http://www.srijan.in) is a small (~25 people) startup company in
Delhi, specialising in web development and open source technologies.

We have been interested in Solr for a while, and have implemented
search through Solr for various clients, including the added
features offered by Solr on top of Lucene, such as facet searches,
more like this, etc. As these do not really involve data mining at
the moment, I am not sure that looking at our implementations will
help at the moment, but here are some sample ones, covering
implementations within TYPO3 and Drupal:
o http://www.ede.nl/zoeken
o http://gemeente.leiden.nl/zoeken/
o http://www.openthemagazine.com/search/apachesolr_search
o http://www.indiaenvironmentportal.org.in/search/apachesolr_search
More, such as in Django, are under way.

At least for the moment, we have not felt a need to go down to
Lucene, as Solr offers us all we need, with an acceptable overhead.
This might change if we really need to go pedal-to-the-metal, but
currently we have only briefly fiddled a little with the Lucence C
API.

Please get in touch if the above sounds interesting to you.

Regards,
Gora
