Hey Keith…

Your question #3 made me curious, as I thought GitHub was a mirror, but https://devclass.com/2019/04/30/apache-heads-to-github/
<https://devclass.com/2019/04/30/apache-heads-to-github/> looks like Github is the authoritative
repo.   The https://tika.apache.org/contribute.html <https://tika.apache.org/contribute.html>
also says the same thing…

So yes, I think the title does need updating.   The Apache Spark’s Github description is
“Apache Spark”, so we could be “Apache Tika”.

Not sure I can answer 1.   

As far as 2,  I find I typically use the tike-app jar unless I am carefully choosing which
dependencies I want.

regarding the mention of Java 1.7 in the README (https://github.com/apache/tika/blob/master/README.md).
It was marked as fixed, but I still see Java 7 mentioned. Tika should work with the most recent
versions of Java, right? Should we not update the readme accordingly? I noticed that there
is a "tika-java7" directory in the project consisting solely of a TikaFileTypeDetector class.
Can you help me understand what the connection with Java version 7 is? Is it that Tika code
should not use features that were absent in Java 7 (such as lambdas)?
> 2) I would like to bring "Rika" (https://github.com/ricn/rika), a Ruby wrapper around
Tika, up to date with respect to the dependency jar files packaged with it. I thought I would
check out the commit to which the 1.22 tag was attached, and do a fresh maven install, and
use the files that were installed ("~/.m2/repository/**/*jar"). Then again, Rika unconditionally
loads all the jar files; would it be faster to just use the jar file of the Tika distribution
(e.g. tika-app-1.22.jar) so that only one instead of n files needs to be loaded? 
> 3) The description for the Github repo at https://github.com/apache/tika says "Tika Mirror".
Is it really a mirror, or has it become the authoritative source? (Given that I saw mentions
of pull requests, I suspect the latter.) If the latter, I suggest changing that text to something
like "Tika Authoritative Repository", as it is currently misleading.
