Apache Lucy invitation


#1

[[cross-posted from the ruby-forum list]]

Hi.

Back in 2006[0], Dave Balmain and Marvin H. agreed to join forces
on their search projects, Ferret and KinoSearch (respectively), and
created the Lucy project at Apache.

Now it’s 2010. Lucy is in the Apache Incubator.[1]

I’m a part of the Apache Lucy project, and I’d like to invite you to
become a part of it too.

The main goal of Apache Lucy is to provide the core C code for
language-specific implementations, like Ferret does for Ruby. Now’s your
chance to help define what Apache Lucy looks like for Ruby.

Mailing list information at the Incubator site[1].

cheers,
Peter Karman
