Subject Re: Lucene 4.0

It really sounds good to me, this is a kick start =). I haven't contributed
yet, but I would like to help you all to get this job done.

I'm completely agree with Paul and Prescott.

I know that there is a high commitment for keep the retrocompatibility on
Lucene. Does Java Lucene API gets big changes every release?

Is the Lucene.Net a port from a stable version from a Lucene version,
right? If the Lucene API gets only minor changes every stable release (or
keep most of its source-code), we could compare the versions, check the
differences and bring them to Lucene.Net. Again, I haven't contributed with
yet, so I don't know how it is (just an idea).

What's your approach for implement simple performance improvements (without
adding references or changing methods signatures)? Does it could be done,
or "follow the java version only"?
