Subject Re: announce: web spider/search tool built w/Lucene
Date Mon, 01 Apr 2002 19:33:22 GMT
What I'd like to do if we ever finish the "where to do it" discussion, 
is put all 3 submissions under /scratchpad/(X,Y,Z)

Then have a


and refactor the bits and pieces into there.  That way we can get he 
best of all three approaches, continue to build all three throughough 
the process so that users can get their hands on things early (with the 
hope they'll help contribute) and then when we've stabilized the 
sources, move the luceneapp into the lucene core as a seperate build 
target (for proper encapsulation).
