Subject Apache Lucy has retired
Date Fri, 14 Sep 2018 20:03:24 GMT
Announcing that the Apache Lucy committers have voted to retire
the project due to inactivity.

Lucy was a search engine library providing full-text search for
dynamic programming languages.  It was a "loose C" port of the
Apache Lucene search engine library for Java.

Please note that Lucene and Lucy are completely separate projects;
Lucy has retired, while Lucene continues to thrive.

Retiring a project is not as simple as turning everything off, as
existing users need to both know that the project is retiring and
retain access to the necessary information for their own development

You can read more about Lucy's retirement at:


The user mailing list remains open, while the rest of the project's
resources will continue to be available in a read-only state -
website, wikis, svn, downloads and bug tracker with no change in url.

Providing process and solutions to make it clear when an Apache
project has reached its end of life is the role of the Apache Attic,
and you can read more about that at:



Marvin Humphrey, on behalf of the Apache Attic and the now
retired Apache Lucy project
