I have passed this issue over to the Lucene PMC (CC'd here too).    
There are two issues, one is in getting some interested committers  
added to the project - and there have been a few folks that have  
contributed significantly to the project that would be suitable I think.

The second issue is that I am not the right person to continue to  
mentor this project.  I have never used (nor intend to use) .NET, and  
I also have no time/interest for helping with this project.  My  
Lucene focus has turned to Solr, which I say is a better way to put  
Lucene on .NET anyway (though of course that requires running a JVM  
in the mix too, which is of course prohibitive in many .NET  
environments).  So we really need a new mentor for this project as well.

There may be a Lucene PMCer who is interested in volunteering to  
mentor, but he is not an Apache Member.  As I understand it,  
membership is required to be a mentor, right?

Where to now?
