Subject Re: [VOTE] Close down the Lucene.NET project, effective January 31, 2011
Date Wed, 29 Dec 2010 16:21:17 GMT
+1 - Shut it down.


Sadly I feel guilty of encouraging Lucene.NET to set up shop under the Lucene PMC, but without
helping or even really caring about it (other than at the time being for everything "Lucene"
under this umbrella).  I've never been a .NET programmer (my past in ASP/MSVC++ predates .NET).
 So, along with my vote I apologize for not mentoring Lucene.NET as it should have been. 
It seems there's a lot of energy behind Lucene on the .NET platform though, so I'm confident
that it'll survive and thrive in an environment where it most fits.

  Due to the Holidays here in the US, this vote will be open for 5 days.
