Sounds good. Please let me know if there is anything that is unclear, and I will try to clarify.

If what you are looking for is a small task to do a trial run, an item that isn't listed on
JIRA is to make a cross-OS version of build.bat, which is just a wrapper around a PowerShell
build script. The fact that it is a .bat file is the only thing holding us back from being
able to build with simple command line options on non-Windows platforms. Essentially all build.bat
does is define a few parameters with an optional value (
that can be entered in any order and then uses them to launch the PowerShell build script.
Ideally, a user would be able to enter the same commands on any OS in order to start the build.

If you already have the skill set to do this, it should be quick and simple. If not, there
isn't a lot of research involved to get it done, as the script isn't very complicated. Either
way, it is a small investment of time that you can use to broaden your understanding of how
to contribute.

Thank you for the kind invitation to contribute and links to where the open issues are listed.
 I have found Lucene.Net so useful that contributing has crossed my mind.  I will look over
the issues list and see if there is something small I can tackle where I can learn the process
of contributing.
Once I better understand how to contribute and the related process, I may tackle some larger

Thank you. While high praise is certainly welcome and appreciated, the best way to thank us
is to provide a contribution.

Based on feedback from users who "want to help, but don't know where to start", one of the
things I have been working on is posting several issues in JIRA and at ICU4N (our largest
dependency) that are marked "up-for-grabs".


There are many tasks available ranging from about 30 minutes of work to 150 hours, but working
any of these issues regardless of how little or how much effort it takes would be highly appreciated.

The focus now is on getting Lucene.NET 4.8.0 into production, which means there are a several
low priority "could haves" that probably won't be done unless someone contributes them, some
of which I think would be interesting and fun little projects.

Hi Lucene Devs,


My name is Ron Clabo and I just discovered Lucene.Net about 3 months ago.
I've been working to understand Lucene and integrate it into an ecommerce marketplace platform
I'm working on.  I find that the Lucene codebase is quite wonderful and the fact that the
project strives to be a line for line port of Java Lucene means that as a new Lucene developer
I have both the docs and the Java Lucene docs to turn to.  Awesome!  


I'd like to thank all the devs that have put time into making Lucene.Net possible and I would
like to especially thank Shad Storhaug who has done such an enormous about of the work and
currently who is working to get this project back on track.  Thank you Shad Storhaug!
