Subject Re: [Announce] RankingAlgorithm ver 1.0

Hi Ted:

It is free for open source projects and non-profits. I looked at the 
license agreement and
am not sure which parts limit re-distribution but if you can point it 
out, sure
can take a look to make the needed changes. It is not open source though.

Regarding Lucene/Solr, the wiki has the schema and solrconfig used for 
the tests,
see here:

Lucene is very good and RankingAlgorithm builds on to this by making it 
very easy
to get relevant and accurate results without much  tuning, etc.
