[jira] [Commented] (SOLR-11694) Remove extremely outdated UIMA contrib module

JIRA jira@apache.org

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-11694?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16623428#comment-16623428 ]

Jan Høydahl commented on SOLR-11694:
------------------------------------

I agree with the fact that if a feature is not maintained, since no committers actually use it, and no active users provide patches to keep it up to date, it is better to remove it than it rotting inside a contrib.

I would encourage anyone who want to have such feature available for Solr, to contribute to maintaining it by starting a Github project with the latest UIMA contrib code, and maintaining it as a separate project. There are many other examples of plugins that are maintained by 3rd parties, so this is not a bad solution per se.

> A user on the [solr-user mailing list back in June|https://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/lucene-solr-user/201706.mbox/%3CCANsk%2BC_PvZJ38AQ2VfzKRYSQn6c8b33kGvaXxR3qNS3GQ4VUKA%40mail.gmail.com%3E] brought up the fact that IBM has bought Alchemy and keys are no longer available to use Solr's UIMA contrib.
> Someone recently made a [similar comment|https://lucene.apache.org/solr/guide/7_1/uima-integration.html#comment_7174] to the Solr Ref Guide page and asking for a patch.
> I know next to nothing about UIMA, but figured it's worth an issue to determine what to do here. I think folks are saying it's no longer usable? Or maybe only usable by people who already have keys (which will possibly expire at some point)?
> Anyone have an idea what needs to be done here? It seems we should have some kind of answer, but if it's no longer usable perhaps we should retire the contrib.
