==Board Question==
"mt: An explanation for the long gap between releases would be helpful."

As mentioned in many previous board reports the Lucene.Net community has
struggled to consistently maintain strong community involvement. We had
several quarters of good progress followed by zero progress. As of this
moment, we are making great progress and our community appears to be much more
vibrate than in the past when we had on going progress.

Apache Lucene.Net is a port of the Lucene search engine library, written in C#
and targeted at .NET runtime users.

== Summary ==

We continue to yo-yo in community involvement. In our December report we saw
an uptick in community involvement, followed by a lull, followed by some very
active community engagement end of march to present.

We are looking at updating Lucene.Net 4.8.0 (which is nearly complete) to
work on .NET Core (to work across various OS's).

Apache Lucene.Net is a port of the Lucene search engine library, written in C#
and targeted at .NET runtime users.

== Summary ==

We continue to yo-yo in community involvement. Our report dated 10/17/15, we
were in a lull, but as of the last week or so we have started to uptick
towards a release of 4.8.0

We have verbal commitments from several open source projects to provide
assistance once we show some of our own momentum.

We are still working to have all tests passing across the various devs who run
them.

We are struggling to pull it over the line. We had a number of core committers
check who said they should be freeing up to help this quarter

Apache Lucene.Net is a port of the Lucene search engine library, written in
C# and targeted at .NET runtime users.

== Summary ==

We continue to yo-yo in community involvement. Our report dated 6/10, we saw a
significant up tick, but that faded as we got very close to a 4.8.0 release.
Some of us have all the tests passing and some don't so we are close in the
Lucene.Net.Core project.

The status of the associated libraries are very behind - next up is the
Analysis code.

No progress was made on a website refresh (that we wanted to launch with
4.8.0)

We are struggling to pull it over the line. We had a number of core committers
check who said they should be freeing up to help this quarter (now only 2
months elft

Pushing on 4.8.0.
- Approximately 7 commits in the last quarter to move our port along
(resolving tests)
- Currently we have ~5 failed failing tests to fix (down from ~80 last report.
Also depends on environment still, we are trying to tighten that up)
- Some additional libraries that help users make the most of Lucene.Net
(Analysis, Suggest, Highlighters, QueryParser, Codecs and a few others)

Apache Lucene.Net is a port of the Lucene search engine library, written in
C#  and targeted at .NET runtime users.

== Summary ==

As last reported, we were concerned with the stagnant nature of our PMC.
That concern is fading as we've seen a large uptick in community involvement
from both the current committers/PMC members as well as the greater community.


- Our website refresh has stalled, I will look to revive this over the next
quarter. We'd like to have a refresh with the 4.8.0 release

Pushing on 4.8.0.
- Approximately 30 commits in the last quarter to move our port along
- Currently we have ~80 failed failing tests to fix (down from ~120 last
report) as well
 as some additional libraries that help users make the most of Lucene.Net
 (Suggest, Analysis, Highlighters, QueryParser, Codecs and a few others)


== Crowdfunding ==

Previously we mentioned that one of our PMC members was looking to crowdfund
some of his development time. However, took up a new full time job while we
were sorting out some of the specifics. We currently have no knowledge of any
plans for this at this time

Apache Lucene.Net is a port of the Lucene search engine library, written in
C#  and targeted at .NET runtime users.

== Summary ==

As last reported, we were concerned with the stagnant nature of our PMC.
That concern is fading as we've seen a large uptick in community invovlement
from both the current commiters/PMC members as well as the greater community.

- Continous Integration is now fully configured
- We're still looking at website refresh

Pushing hard on 4.8.0.
 - Approxmiately 200 commits in the last quarter to move our port along
 - 4 community members submitted patches to the port (who are not commiters
   or PMC members)
 - Currently we have ~120 failing tests to fix, as well as some additional
   libraries that help users make the most of Lucene.Net (Suggest, Analysis,
   Highligthers, QueryParser, Codecs and afew others)
 - Mailing list messages are also on the up tick.

== Crowdfunding ==

One of our PMC members (Itamar Syn-Hershko), is working on launching a crowd
funding campaign to allow him to finalize the work he has been tirelessly
putting into the 4.8.0 release. The PMC is supportive of his efforts.

Apache Lucene.Net is a port of the Lucene search engine library, written in C#
and targeted at .NET runtime users.

== Summary ==

The PMC has recognized we have become stagnant and have not had a release in
two years. We are actively working towards rebuilding and re-invigorating the
community.
Cleaning up our PMC processes:
 - We realized several PMC members were not on the private mailing list
 - There was a typo in the moderation account for the mailing list
   that wasn't realized
 - We had a roll call and all PMC members are now present and accounted for
 - Last PMC Member Added, Paul Irwin, October 2013

Working on our community / tooling:
 - We're actively brainstorming how to create better documentation around
   getting started with Lucene.Net as a developer, and getting invovled
   as a committer
 - With the help of our community members and some free licensing, we are
   in the process of setting up a CI system for our tests
 - We're looking at possibly pulling in questions from stackoverflow to the
   mailing list to expand visibility of those questions to the mailing list
   and hopefully spur conversation (SO questions look like 1 per 1-2 days
   or so at most)
 - Looking at a website refresh to go along with the documentation
Pushing hard on 4.8.0.
 - We were provided a contribution from MSFT over the summer of a significant
   code port of the 4.8.0 Java code. We have been working to clean that up.
   Currently we have 300 failing tests to fix, as well as some additional
   libraries that help users make the most of Lucene.Net (encoding codecs and
   contrib extensions)

We could use any advice or assistance on the above to help us build / rebuild our
community.

17 Sep 2014 [Prescott Nasser / Chris]

Apache Lucene.Net is a port of the Lucene search engine library, written in C#
and targeted at .NET runtime users.

== Summary ==

In the last month we have had a significant contribution from some interns at
Microsoft. After working through CLA/ICLA issues we were able to get their
code for a port of Java Lucene 4.8 into our official Lucene.Net repo. We are
actively working on getting tests to pass (with approx. 3/4ths passing). As
well as porting additional contrib packages for additional functionality.

We had some issues with the ICLA, and it was determined, with legal, secretary
and some board input, that we are not going to question CLA's and their
responses where they say they do not require employer CCLA's.

== Releases ==

Working toward 4.8. Additionally we have a 4.3 port targeting portable common
library in the works.

== Statistics ==

Nuget package downloads:

Lucene.Net Contrib 3.0.3: 25325

== Additional Information ==

- We've gotten some support from Microsoft developers, it looks like there is
 a group in MSFT that is taking an active interest in this project (just an
 observation)
- We've had some questions about the health of the project on our mailing
 list, as well as a number of people asking how they could get involved
 (from website maintenance to porting code)
- A few of our committers are very active working to finalize the v4 port of
 Lucene.Net
- There have been ~50 new questions tagged as Lucene.Net since July
 (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/lucene.net?page=1&sort=newest&pagesize=50)
- Overall, I feel we are doing ok, but as a team we need to get a new release
 out (last release was end of 2012)

Apache Lucene.Net is a port of the Lucene search engine library, written in C#
and targeted at .NET runtime users.

== Summary ==

Activity has picked up for the port of 4.3.0, the team is finishing up testing
and some contrib packages for additional functionality. It looks like we
should be approaching a release soon (closer than last report which had
similar language)

== Additional Information ==

The overall health of the community is difficult to quantify -
* We have some new names popping up in our developers mailing list, helping us
with bug fixes and tweaks, as well as questions regarding our progress
* A few of our committers are very active working to finalize the v4 port of
Lucene.Net
* There have been ~50 new questions tagged as Lucene.Net since March
(http://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/lucene.net?page=1&sort=newest&pages
ize=50)

Areas needing improvement -
* As a group we need to update our documentation / wiki to allow others to
easily jump in and contribute - it's difficult to understand the current
progress and see what needs to be done as an outsider
* A better, more up to date roadmap and better communication with the
community

Apache Lucene.Net is a port of the Lucene search engine library, written in
C# and targeted at .NET runtime users.

== Summary ==

Over the past two months we have tried to re-invigorate our efforts on the
Lucene.Net project. Interest, progress and discussion had waned. One of our
community members has stepped up and has a running version of Lucene.Net
4.0.3 core. We have voted to invite him into the Lucene.Net PMC. We've begun
coordination of including his code into our official repo (waiting on a
signed ICLA). We hope to continue this progress.

Apache Lucene.Net is a port of the Lucene search engine library,
written in C# and targeted at .NET runtime users.

Lucene.Net just graduated from the Incubator August 15th and we are
currently moving our resources and website out of the incubator. A new
DNS https://lucenenet.apache.org has been setup and our new mailing
lists have been created. Still to do is moving our SVN repositories
and moving over our website. We are nearing a new release, 3.0.3,
which should be put to a vote within a day or two.

 RESOLVED, that the initial Apache Lucene.Net PMC be and hereby is
 tasked with the creation of a set of bylaws intended to encourage
 open development and increased participation in the Apache
 Lucene.Net Project; and be it further

 RESOLVED, that the Apache Lucene.Net Project be and hereby is
 tasked with the migration and rationalization of the Apache
 Incubator Lucene.Net podling; and be it further

 RESOLVED, that all responsibilities pertaining to the Apache
 Incubator Lucene.Net podling encumbered upon the Apache Incubator
 Project are hereafter discharged.

 Special Order 7B, Establish the Apache Lucene.Net Project, was
 approved by Unanimous Vote of the directors present.

15 Aug 2012

Lucene.Net was accepted into the Apache Incubator in February 2011.
Originally it was a sub project of the Lucene Project.

Lucene.Net is a port of the Lucene search engine library, written in C# and
targeted at .NET runtime users. Lucene.Net has three primary goals:

 - Maintain the existing line-by-line port from Java to C#, fully automating
   and commoditizing the process such that the project can easily synchronize
   with the Java Lucene release schedule.

 - High-performance C# search engine library.

 - Maximize usability and power when used within the .NET runtime. To that
   end, it will present a highly idiomatic, carefully tailored API that
   takes advantage of many of the special features of the .NET runtime.

Recent Activity:

 - Voted to graduation (vote passed - we will now be sending our resolution
   to the board)

Current Activities:

 Lucene 3.0.3 has taken longer to get out the door than expected -
 originally planned for June. We are still nearly ready to release,
 but we have added a lot of functionality - compatibility with .NET 3.5
 (which we removed for the 2.9.4 release). CLS compliance for usage with
 other .NET languages (like VB.NET). We have also done a lot of cleanup
 work on the code base.

 Working through the graduation process and all the entails.

Long term goals:

 Have a nearly fully automated process to convert Java Lucene to C#.
 (This has been a goal, but we are discussing if this is truly the best
 idea of the project).
 MAY UPDATE: We have done some more investigative work on this, but not
 much progress was made.
 AUGUST UPDATE: still unfortunately little progress has been made

 Parity with Java Lucene (4.0). Planning for an interim 3.6 release before
 the 4.0.

 Have a new .NET version of Lucene utilizing .NET constructs and idioms.
 Much progress was made on this (using properties vs GetXX/SetXX).

Graduation thought:

 We are submitting our resolution to the board, the vote has passed in
 our Lucene.Net community as well as by the IPMC and incubator community.

 - Released 2.9.4g (generics version of 2.9.4) at the end of january

Current Activities:

 - Lucene 3.0.3 porting is nearly complete. We have some bugs to work out,
   and need to clean up our contrib projects a bit, but we hope to release
   that within a month or two.

Long term goals:

 - Have a nearly fully automated process to convert Java Lucene to C#.

Graduation thought:

 One of the mentors (Stefan Bodewig) has indicated he wants to start
 pushing for graduation. UPDATE: Unfortunately, we have not made any
 progress on this - hopefully we can have a more conclusive update next
 check in. Our development/committers group is small, and work sometimes
 happens in bursts and then stalls - something we need to work on a bit.
 The team has started to be more vocal about the project, for example a
 blog has been added, and hopes to attract more contributors.

Lucene.Net is a source code, class-per-class, API-per-API and algorithmatic
port of the Java Lucene search engine to the C# and .NET platform utilizing
Microsoft .NET Framework.

Not much changed from the last report:

 * Announced Lucene.Net 2.3.1 as "final" (via SVN).

 * Port of 2.3.2 is completed; the code is being reviewed and should be
announced soon.

 * Work is simultaneously underway on the Lucene.Net 2.4.0 port.

 * We are in the process of looking into graduation

Lucene.Net has seen positive activities over the past 3 (or even 6 months),
the key highlights are:

 * Accepted Isik Yigit (aka: "DIGY") and Doug Sale as new committers, on
November 2008.
 * Announced Lucene.Net 2.3.1 as beta (via SVN).
 * Work is underway on the Lucene.Net 2.3.2 port.
 * Work is simultaneously underway on the Lucene.Net 2.4.0 port.

15 Oct 2008

No changes.... still a limping along community with the potential for new
committers on the horizon for quite some time now but no action towards
bringing them on.  There is some vitality to the mailing list, but being a
mostly auto-generated port of Java Lucene does not an excitingly innovative
project make.

IPMC reviews: jukka

Lucene.Net is a source code, class-per-class, API-per-API and algorithmatic
port of the Java Lucene search engine to the C# and .NET platform utilizing
Microsoft .NET Framework. Lucene Indexes created with Java / C# Lucene are
cross compatible.

Lucene.Net has been incubating since April 2006.

Development on Lucene.Net is back with renewed interest and commitment from
a number of new folks. Currently, work is underway to port Java Lucene
2.3.1 to the .NET platform. In addition, we are looking to add new
committers to the project based on their contribution.

16 Apr 2008

Lucene.Net has been struggling with the absence of the only committer
(George Aroush).  A handful of the top contributors are in the process of
rallying and proposing themselves as future committers and rejuvenating the
project.  There is interest here, but it has been a tough time for this
project.

Perhaps we could liason with Microsoft (Bill Rowe might take point) on
publicizing and promoting ASF .NET/C# projects.

Project name - Apache Lucene.Net

Description - Lucene.Net is a source code, class-per-class, API-per-API and
algorithmtic port of the Java Lucene search engine to the C# and .NET
platform utilizing Microsoft .NET Framework.

Date of entry - April, 2006

Progress since last report - We have seen good activities in the past three
months on the mailing list (both the dev and user).  Unlike in the past,
where I was taking care of all fixes in the code in preparation to a
release, I have seen considerable patches submitted by the community to
resolve open issues in Lucene.Net 2.1 work.  This is very encouraging and I
would like to suggest to the community to vote on adding one of the active
patch submitter as a committer.

Code aspects - Code is very stable with current "beta" version of 2.1 which
we expect to release in the next few weeks.

Community aspects - We have good followers and the past three months have
shown good commitments for submitting patches.

Top three items to resolve -

1. Growth of community - while this has been improving, we still need more
active members, specially those who submit patches.

2. Release Apache Lucene.Net 2.1 and start working on 2.2 / 2.3.

3. Vote in a new committer.

18 Jul 2007

Description - Lucene.Net is a source code, class-per-class, API-per-API and
algorithmatic port of the Java Lucene search engine to the C# and .NET
platform utilizing Microsoft .NET Framework.

Date of entry - April, 2006

Top item(s) to resolve - Increase the development community and
participation.  Since the incubation of Lucene.Net, there has been only one
active committer, George Aroush, who has done 99% of the port work.  This
has slowed the port effort such that we are now over 3 months behind with
out 2.1 release.  Currently, I have tried to re-energies this effort and
emphasized that without developers, Lucene.Net will suffer and never
graduate.  I have gotten several mails offering to help, I will work on
those and try to build the development community.

Community aspects - There is a good followers, with good user base.  A lot
of questions get asked and answered on the user list.

Code aspects - Released version 2.0 "final" on April 2007.  Released version
2.1 "alpha" on May 2007

iPMC Reviewers: rdonkin, jukka

Lucene.Net has had a rough time learning the ropes of the Apache Incubator,
struggling with making releases that dot all the i's.  There are several
hurdles, with a single committer (George Aroush) using a language/platform
that is not commonly used at the ASF and which has a culture that has
historically not been about open source (C# .NET).  Goerge has put forth
additional effort recently to address the concerns that the Incubator PMC
mentioned, and is on its way to a new release.

iPMC questions / comments:
 * jukka: Incubating since 2006-03-15

17 Jan 2007

Lucene.Net is a port of the Java Lucene to C#.  The API, algorithm and index
are cross compatible.

Incubation

* Lucene.Net has been under incubation since April 2006

Community

* An active, but a small community exists.  The challenge has been to bring
in folks who are willing to contribute to the code beside myself.

Code and documentation

* The code base continues to develop and new releases are being made.
Recently Lucene.Net 2.0 "final" was release as well as Highlighter.Net 2.0
and Snowball.Net 2.0.  In addition, for each of those components, there
corresponding MSDN style documentation is also release.

19 Jul 2006

Lucene.Net continues to progress. Recently Lucene.Net 1.9 RC1 Final was
released.  In addition, Lucene.Net 1.9.1 Beta is released.  Work is underway
to release Lucene.Net 2.0 Beta by end of July. Folks are beginning to
discover Lucene.Net and activities on the project from posting questions and
code fixes are beginning to show some signs of life. However, things are
still slow in terms of participation. Lucene.Net can use some publicity and
exposure which I intend to start doing by asking to create a link to
Lucene.Net on the main Jakarta Lucene web page as well as by creating a Wiki
page for Lucene.Net.
