Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-11694) Remove extremely outdated UIMA contrib module
Date Fri, 21 Sep 2018 02:27:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-11694?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16622971#comment-16622971
] 

Erick Erickson commented on SOLR-11694:
---------------------------------------

Well, it is (was) a contrib. Which means there's no reason you couldn't pull the old code
and compile it yourself and continue to use it as-was. The fact that it won't be distributed
with each new version of Solr is really not that big a barrier.

Once you'd pulled it all locally and gotten the build to happen, going to version X+1 should
be straightforward.

Solr _volunteers_ can't be expected to maintain code that nobody who uses is willing to contribute
effort to maintain.

> A user on the [solr-user mailing list back in June|https://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/lucene-solr-user/201706.mbox/%3CCANsk%2BC_PvZJ38AQ2VfzKRYSQn6c8b33kGvaXxR3qNS3GQ4VUKA%40mail.gmail.com%3E]
brought up the fact that IBM has bought Alchemy and keys are no longer available to use Solr's
UIMA contrib.
> Someone recently made a [similar comment|https://lucene.apache.org/solr/guide/7_1/uima-integration.html#comment_7174]
to the Solr Ref Guide page and asking for a patch.
> I know next to nothing about UIMA, but figured it's worth an issue to determine what
to do here. I think folks are saying it's no longer usable? Or maybe only usable by people
who already have keys (which will possibly expire at some point)?
> Anyone have an idea what needs to be done here? It seems we should have some kind of
answer, but if it's no longer usable perhaps we should retire the contrib.
