Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-11694) Remove extremely outdated UIMA contrib module
Date Fri, 21 Sep 2018 14:56:00 GMT


Aaron LaBella commented on SOLR-11694:

I'm confused... since when does a feature require the "committers" of a project to actually
use it.  I thought the point of open source and a product / features overall was to provide
value to the actual "users" of it.  And for what it's worth, I've personally provided a few
patches to te Solr UIMA project over the past couple years.  I think there is a misconception
to it "rotting" away.  There was nothing to upgrade or maintain because the feature works
exactly as it was designed and written to work.  Again, I've never heard of a feature being
completely removed like this when you have real users out there that are dependent upon it.

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|]
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.
