if you have:

--a set of snippets
--a set of articles

and for each snippet, you want to find the `matching` set of articles, then
you could:

--treat this as an IR task (a snippet becomes a query)

--treat this as co-clustering (eg

nutch could do the first for you;  right now there is no support in mahout
that i know about for co-clustering
