Personally, I think the project is suffering from a chicken-egg problem. 
Without releases no users, without users no developers, without developers no 
Somehow it also feels to me that either dotNet has no credibility at ASF, or 
that ASF has no credibility for dotNet development. So few efforts are 
started, and even fewer get some momentum.

A quick peek...

ABOUT.txt contains a reference that George Aroush has developed Lucene.Net. We 
have previously concluded that such balkanization is bad.

I am also pleased to see that the many remarks in the first round has been 
attended to promptly. 
However, there are 2 more subsystems in "contrib/" and the first file I 
checked "Similarity.Net/AssemblyInfo.cs" didn't have the Apache License 
header, but others did. I did not perform an exhaustive check. I would be 
interested to here how come "so much" gets added between two reviews of a 
release 2.0.

But I think those are minor enough to get my +1 for this release.
