Hi Erik,

In the incubator, responsibility for proposing new committers lies  
with the PPMC, which is a problem here because both of the folks with  
this responsibility are leaving.

I'd agree with you to kick the project back to the Lucene PMC for  
further action.

Restarting the project will require new Mentors (hopefully 3 will  
volunteer) and new committers, which sounds like a full proposal to  
the incubator would be the right path to take. Looking through the  
documentation on the incubator site, I can't find the original (wiki)  
proposal nor who the sponsoring entity is.
