Looking at [1] I think we are pretty good on almost all points. The
only thing that could be better is diversity of activity, as currently
I'm by far the most active committer. I'm not sure how well the
project would cope with me losing interest or being hit by a bus.

But, as Bertrand said, it might well be that the community will never
grow much larger at least in terms of active development. With the
basic parser infrastructure already in place, I think most of the Tika
development will be incremental in nature (bug fixing, adding support
for new file formats, etc.) that for most part won't require long term
involvement or lots of activity.

I'm not sure if the Apache TLP model works that well for small
projects like this, so I think it might be better to go for a Lucene
