Subject Lucene.Net 4.8.0-beta00001 release blocked by the NuGet package with ID "Lucene.Net.Analysis.Common"
Date Tue, 02 May 2017 07:08:15 GMT
Ferron H,

Hello, my name is Shad Storhaug and I have been working full-time (as a volunteer committer)
on the Apache Lucene.Net project for the past 9 months. I am pleased to say that we are now
ready to release our first beta on NuGet pending a formal vote process which is expected to
take 3 days. However, you can imagine my surprise and disappointment to find that one of our
new NuGet package IDs (Lucene.Net.Analysis.Common) has already been taken.

While you probably uploaded the Lucene.Net.Analysis.Common NuGet package with the best of
intentions, it is unfortunately now a blocker for our release (
The new release is more than 2000 commits ahead of the 4.9.0 package. There have been hundreds
of bugs fixed, more than 100 tests that were failing (after completing the test framework)
are now passing, there is now support for .NET Core, and the API is now much more .NET-like
than it was previously. That said, the API is completely incompatible with the Lucene.Net.Analysis.Common
package that you have uploaded.

We appreciate the fact that you and other users might be utilizing the Lucene.Net.Analysis.Common
4.9.0 package in your projects, so I propose we do the following to help resolve this issue:

1.       Invite me (NightOwl888) to be a package owner of the NuGet package Lucene.Net.Analysis.Common
so I can invite other Apache PMC members as owners. This will allow us to release Lucene.Net.4.8.0-beta00001
and continue releasing new official versions after Lucene.Net.4.8.0-beta00001.

2.       Hide the version 4.9.0 Lucene.Net.Analysis.Common package so it doesn't cause dependency
conflicts when people install other official Lucene.Net packages that depend on it. This ensures
any project build that depends on Lucene.Net.Analysis.Common 4.9.0 will still be able to install
it, but it will no longer be visible from the NuGet Package Manager Console.

Also, we noticed that you have uploaded the NuGet package Lucene.Net.Core. While we don't
plan on using that package ID, we would appreciate if you would edit the details in's
control panel to reflect that this is not an official package from The Apache Software Foundation,
as it is causing much confusion among our user base.

We would appreciate if you would join our efforts to make Lucene.Net 4.8.0 stable (and complete)
and help pave the way for the next upgrade of Lucene.Net from the Java Lucene project (
