Subject [Report] Apache Lucene.Net - Dec 2014
Date Fri, 05 Dec 2014 21:51:26 GMT
Apache Lucene.Net is a port of the Lucene search engine library, written in C# 
and targeted at .NET runtime users.
== Summary ==
The PMC has recognized we have become stagnant and have not had a release in 
two years. We are actively working towards rebuilding and re-invigorating the 

Cleaning up our PMC processes:

 - We're looking at possibly pulling in questions from stackoverflow to the 
   mailing list to expand visibility of those questions to the mailing list
   and hopefully spur conversation (SO questions look like 1 per 1-2 days
   or so at most)
 - Looking at a website refresh to go along with the documentation

   code port of the 4.8.0 Java code. We have been working to clean that up.
   Currently we have 300 failing tests to fix, as well as some additional 
   libraries that help users make the most of Lucene.Net (encoding codecs and
   contrib extensions)
We could use any advice or assistance on the above to help us build / rebuild our
