Hi Jukka,

 Thanks for your email. Indeed, there was discussion on the Lucene PMC email
list, about the Tika project. It was decided by the powers that be to
discuss it more on the Nutch mailing list before moving forward with any
vote on making Tika a sub-project of Apache Lucene. With regards to that, my
action was to send the Tika proposal to the nutch-dev list, and help to
start up a discussion on Tika, to get feedback from the community. Seeing as
though you lighted the fire under this (thanks!), it's only appropriate for
me to send out the Tika project proposal sent to the Lucene PMC. So, here it
is, attached. I'd love to here feedback from the Nutch community on what it
thinks of such a project.
