Subject Re: [jira] Closed: (NUTCH-562) Port mime type framework to use Tika mime detection framework
Date Tue, 09 Oct 2007 21:22:36 GMT
UWhat bothers me here is not the time to commit, although I agree 
probably should have been longer than 1 day, but that AFAIK there is 
very little documentation about Tika.  That being said, both Chris and 
Sami are committers for Tika.  So if they both feel that Tika is mature 
enough to use, and can help answer the inevitable question on the Nutch 
list about it, then I feel it would be okay to keep the changes.
