Subject: [VOTE] Graduate Lucene.Net as a subproject under Apache Lucene

Hi Folks,


This vote calls to graduate the Lucene.Net project
( as a sub-project under Apache


Everyone in the Lucene.Net community is welcome to vote.  The goal is to see
no "-1" and all the committers must cast a "+1" before we can move on for a
final vote by the Apache IPMC.


The rationale for graduation is:

  * Lucene.Net has been under incubation since April 2006 (3 1/2 years now).

  * During incubation, Lucene.Net has:

    - Made, 1 official release

    - Released, as SVN tag, 18 ports of Java Lucene (from 1.9 to 2.4.0).

    - Released, as SVN tag, port of WordNet.Net 2.0, SpellChecker.Net 2.0,
Snowball.Net 2.0, and Highlighter.Net 2.0.

    - Released, MSDN style documentation for the above release.

    - Accepted, two new committers: Isik YIGIT (DIGY) digydigy @
and Doug Sale dsale @ were added in November 2008 (George
Aroush george @ is the original committer).

    - The community has grown, with a healthy followers.

    - Is being used by well established companies in production (I'm not
sure what's the legality to mention their names here, or even if I have the
complete list).

    - Is being used by Beagle project.


If this graduation is approved, Lucene.Net will be officially called "Apache


Please cast your votes:

[ ]  +1  Graduate Lucene.Net as a sub-project under Apache Lucene.

[ ]   0  I don't care.

[ ]  -1  Lucene.Net is not ready to graduate as a sub-project under Apache
Lucene, because ...


This vote will close on September 21st, 2009.
