OK, I'm not sure either.  I will check.  We could certainly just mothball it here, but I don't
think that is necessarily what we want either.

The hard date of addressing the 4 issues was set for the end of the year.   I don't think
any of them have been addressed.  There was a big discussion for a while, but it doesn't seem
like anyone has done any of the actual work, even something as simple as updating the website.
 This next date, in my mind, is to make it clear that the Lucene PMC is done being responsible
for Lucene.NET by Jan. 31.  I am more than willing to help them move somewhere else, but it
is up to them to say where that is.
