Hi Hakeem,

Happy to have you on board

Unfortunately, the 4x branch you were working off is based on an earlier
version of Lucene and has been stale for quite a while. Work has progressed
on the master branch towards a release of Lucene.NET 4.8. See:

Current state of affairs is that we have about 350 failing tests (out of
~2200) and we are working hard on making them all pass. Then we are looking
at porting more sub-projects (like the Analysis, Suggest etc) including
their own tests.

If you could get the latest sources from there and see what you can help us
with - be it investigating failing tests or doing some porting work on
other bits we haven't ported yet - that'd be great.

Let us know on this list if you have any questions.
