You sent the following message via NuGet Gallery: 
User pnasser <> sends the following message to the owners
of Package 'Lucene.Net.Core'.
Hey Ferronrsmith. My name is Prescott Nasser, I'm the Chair of the Apache Lucene.Net project
at Apache. We've had several people get confused by your package and the naming. Specifically
using the Apache brand, and the fact that there is no version 4.9 of the library available.

Do you mind renaming your package to avoid confusion with the official Apache Lucene.Net packages?
Thanks very much Prescott Nasser VP - Lucene.Net

This doesn't sound like something that Apache would approve of, so I am bringing it to your
attention. It is certainly going to cause confusion among users.


For reference:

The PMC needs to reach out to whoever did so and tell them it is not acceptable and they need
to label their packages properly. Most likely this has happenen with the best intententions
and can be rectified. Does anybody know "ferronrsmith"?
