Subject: RE: Regarding 4.9 vs 4.8 beta


I was just about to send an email regarding this.

I think it is important that we use the right language to explain to the powers that be at
NuGet exactly what happened. Something along the lines of:

"We have been working on a version 4.8.0-beta00001 of Lucene.Net that has 16 new NuGet packages.
While we were in the process of preparing for the release, another user used an older, unstable
version of our source code to build a version called "4.9.0" and uploaded it to NuGet with
one of our intended package IDs "Lucene.Net.Analysis.Common". We have contacted the NuGet
user, ferronrsmith about this but received no reply. This is now blocking our release, since
we cannot release with our original package ID to a NuGet package that we don't currently
own. It doesn't make sense for us to rename the package because this is a port from Java and
we want to keep similar package names as the original. Furthermore, this is causing confusion
among our users, as the user is masquerading this as an official package from Apache, even
though it is not."

That said, I took a look at their "Report Abuse" feature and they don't have a way to give
an explanation there. I think the best we can do is "The package owner is fraudulently claiming
authorship", which should be enough to get some action started on this.

It's been ~72 hours since I contacted Ferronrsmith (Nuget Package Owner). At this time, I'd
like to bump it a level higher and contact Nuget Admins. 

Itamar, I don't want to duplicate your efforts though, did you get any response from him when
you contacted him?

This is a bit of a problem, yes. I contacted him via the nuget website asking him to remove
that package and work with us on an official release.
