Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Integrate Apache Any23 into Apache Tika
Date Sat, 19 Oct 2013 19:30:30 GMT

I for one am supportive of this measure somehow. The exact
mechanism by which we can do this is something that could
involve e.g., taking you, or anyone else from the Any23 community
(at this point I think it's really just you by my own accord lurking
on the lists over there) that is interested and bringing you into
the fray for Tika perhaps working on a branch to integrate Any23 and
Tika more closely together, in patch-wise, piecemeal fashion along
the standard way we operate over here in Tika and in Apache.

This would also seem to be in tune with Julien's comment and feeling
that parts of this would make a lot of sense to be part of Tika.

Lewis, why don't you get more opinions over the next week or so
and if there are no strong objections, call a VOTE for the Tika
PMC to VOTE on?

Does that work?
