We currently have a place for it at the Lucene TLP, but that's mostly it.

The 'developer community' of lucene4c is currently just me, although 
others have expressed interest.  The user community is currently 
nonexistant because the code has yet to reach a point where it's really 
useful to an end-user, although it's getting there.

It seems that the best course of action is for the Lucene PMC to vote 
whether they want to accept the project for incubation (which they are 
currently doing), then bring the project into the incubator and try to 
build up a more sustainable community around it.  Then once we've done 
that graduate the project into the Lucene TLP on a permanent basis.
