All children are precious, including ClusterSearcher. :)
Though ClusterSearcher's documentation had gone missing on lucy.apache.org,
it has always been available on search.cpan.org, metacpan.org, etc.
Thank you for the report. Its absence was due to a flaw in Lucy's release
runbook -- regenerating our website docs requires the Report Manager to take
manual steps which have been inadequately specified. I've now performed the

The thing about ClusterSearcher is that it is not accompanied by a
complementary tool to perform turnkey sharded indexing. Implementing such a
tool requires that you make some decisions about index structure -- almost
certainly you'll want a primary key, which Lucy doesn't require by default.
Rather than build on ClusterSearcher, my colleagues at Eventful rolled their
own solution, which is not general enough to consider open-sourcing. I
suspect we're not the only ones who have taken that path.
