Nutch to Leave Lucene?

Hot on the heels of Mahout, another Lucene subproject is currently holding a vote on whether to submit Nutch as an Apache Top-Level Project.

“The ASF board is concerned about the size and diversity of goals across various subprojects under the Lucene TLP, and suggests that each subproject should evaluate whether becoming its own TLP would better serve the project itself and the Lucene TLP,” writes committer Doğacan Güney.

Nutch is web-search software that builds on Apache Lucene, adding web-specifics such as a crawler, parsers for HTML and a link-graph database.

The release of Nutch version 1.1 is expected soon.
