Hi Rida and Chris,

Just want to send in a note of much appreciation for the work you've done (and the others
tika contributors, poi, pdf, lucene, the list goes on).  Work is underway on a project which
feeds off the tika parser, as one of the content providers.  Although tika is still in a pre-1.0
stage, it is providing enough content to allow us to avoid delays and keep momentum.  Thanks
for that!

What I am hoping to contribute as we continue, are examples of files that aren't parsing quite
correctly, or have the wrong encoding set, etc.  This project is running against English and
Thai data, and will be moving into Japanese and Chinese sometime next year.  So, maybe we
will have access to a wider range of asian language files than you might have currently.

I wish that we had the technical level to contribute patches, but if there's anything that
can be passed along to you to help with test / dev, I'd be happy to do so.

Thanks again, and letting you know that your efforts are being put to good use.

-Craig
