Grokbase Groups Lucene dev July 2013
Shawn and Andrzej,

Thanks for answering my questions. I've looked over the code done by Dmitry
and I'll look into what I can do to help with the UI porting in future.

I was actually thinking of doing this JIRA as a project by myself with some
assistance from the community after getting a mentor for the ASF ICFOSS
program, which I haven't found yet. It would be great if I could get one of
you guys as a mentor.

As the UI work has been mostly done by others like Dmitry Kan, I don't
think I need to work on that majorly for now.

What other work is there to be done that I can do as a project? Any new
features or improvements?

One more question : What version of Lucene does Luke currently support
right now? I saw a comment on the issue page that it doesn't support the
Lucene 4.1 and 4.2 trunk.
The official Luke project only has versions up through 4.0.0-ALPHA.

There is a forked project that has produced Luke for newer Lucene

I can't seem to locate any information about how they have licensed the
newer versions, and I'm not really sure where the source code is living.

Regarding a question you asked earlier, Luke is a standalone program.
It does include Lucene classes in the "lukeall" version of the
executable jar.

Luke may have some uses as a library, but I think that most people run
it separately. There is partial Luke functionality embedded in the Solr
admin UI, but I don't know whether that is something cooked up by Solr
devs or if it shares actual code with Luke.

Luke is a standalone GUI application, not a library. It uses a custom
version of Thinlet GUI toolkit, which is no longer maintained, and it's
LGPL licensed, so Luke can't be contributed to the Lucene project as is.

Recently several people expressed interest in porting Luke to some other
GUI toolkit that is Apache-friendly. See the discussion here:**msg/luke-discuss/S_Whwg2jwmA/**9JgqKIe5aiwJ<>

In particular, there's a fork by Dmitry Kan - he plans to integrate other
patches and forks, and to port Luke from Thinlet to GWT and sync it with
the latest version of Lucene. I think you should coordinate your efforts
with him and other contributors that work on that code base. This fork is
Apache-licensed and the long-term plan is to contribute it back to Lucene
once the porting is done.

The Pivot-based port of Luke that is in the Lucene sandbox is in an early
stage. I'm not sure Mark Miller has time to work on it due to his
involvement in SolrCloud development.

The Luke handler in Solr is a completely different code base, and it
shares only the name with the Luke application.
