Hi Erik and all,

"final" in the HISTORY.txt file doesn't mean this package is being released.
It just means this code will not undergoing any more changes.

My previous attempt at getting a vote to release at failed with issues.  I spent this week cleaning
them up and prepared a new package which you can find here:  

I am about to submit this release to be voted on.  However, there is one
last issue I need to work on: PGP verification.

I spent the past few hours learning about PGP and it looks like I am almost
there.  However, I'm not able to verify the package; PGP is telling me:
"Can't check signature: No public key."  Anyone who can help on this regards
please let me know.

Finally, I am new to the incubation process and policy; I can use any help
anyone can offer.  Just like Erik, I too have a life but at the same time I
want to grow Lucene.Net.  So far, this has been difficult to do.

George - Again I have to claim being lame on the specifics here, but what
vote passed a "final" release?  I believe you should be calling anything at
best a "release candidate" until the incubator PMC approves a final release.
Incubator folks, any help on keeping the Lucene.Net project on the straight
and narrow path with respect to policy and expectations is appreciated.

I'm currently the only mentor, and George Aroush is the only committer on
the project.  I'm struggling to keep up with just my home life commitments,
so quite understandably I'm struggling to mentor Lucene.Net, a project I
agreed to mentor purely out of interest in helping the Lucene community,
though I've never used the .NET platform myself.  So I'm eager to help this
project find a new mentor as I am not up to the task at the moment.  If
anyone here cares for Lucene.Net and is member or committer at Apache then
please speak up and lend a hand.  We are at a point now where Lucene.Net is
a sorta make or break depending if folks step up nurture this project.
