Subject RE: [Lucene.Net] Creating a ASF fork of Sharpen under a dOCL license

Alex reached out to them. They said they are open to accepting patches, however their repo
and response times that Alex could see were extremely slow. Further, it's likely we will want
to do more Lucene Java -> .Net specific work that they might decide doesn't fit will with
their overall goals.
I think at the end of the day, I feel (others maybe agree), that it's easier to just fork
it at the start than attempt to give them patches and worry about lag time or rejection.

Completely understood - I *think* that is possible. Obviously if it's not, we have to do it
else where
There's back converation on the JIRA
