[DISCUSS] Apache Tika as TLP

Mattmann, Chris A (3010)
Hey Guys,

If you're on general@lucene then you've probably seen it mentioned it's
worth discussing Tika as an Apache TLP. I'd like to get the community view
on this since I think it likely makes sense:

* Nothing in Tika depends on any of the other Lucene project jars
* Tika provides functionality (mime type, language detection, parsing) that
are useable not just in the context of search
* We are moving forward as a community (0.7 release hopefully soon, I'll try
and cut a release within the next 2 weeks of that)

What does the community think? I can take the outcome of the discussions and
call a VOTE (if it makes sense), then take that to the PMC (in a couple
weeks after some of the other discussions have died down) and see what they
think too.

Cheers,
Chris

Hi Chris,

I really think it makes sense since Tika is not a search component, but
really a toolkit for documents parsing and analysis.
I know it's not the vote time, but it's +1 for me.

Best regards

Jérôme

Makes sense to me.  Tika is cranking these days and while it's great to have in Lucene, it makes more sense on it's own from an ASF organizational standpoint.

FYI, Mahout has a proposal in the works too, including a Board Resolution if you feel like copying one at the appropriate point in time.  See the Mahout as TLP thread over on Mahout Dev: http://www.lucidimagination.com/search/document/e5ca8dabd6f79a9d/discuss_mahout_tlp_board_resolution

Re: [DISCUSS] Apache Tika as TLP

Mattmann, Chris A (3010)
Hey Grant,

Thanks. I'll get started on drafting a board resolution and putting together one more DISCUSS email thread once it is drafted before calling a community VOTE, and then bringing it to the PMC based on the actual tallies.

Appreciate the pointer!

Cheers,
Chris

Agreed. The Tika dev community is (just) big enough for a TLP and I
think having our own PMC would make a few things easier. For example
I'd like to see us grant commitership to new contributors with lower
entry barriers than what the Lucene PMC has traditionally maintained.
It would also make easier to conduct release votes, as all Tika
committers would have binding votes on the releases.

The main tasks in going for a TLP are deciding who'll be included in
the new PMC and who'll be the PMC chair. My proposal is to make all
Tika committers PMC members (now and also in the future when we add
new committers) and to appoint Chris (if he wants) as the PMC chair
since he's already been taking care of many of our board reports. I'm
already chairing Jackrabbit, and would rather avoid another officer
post.

BR,

Hi Jukka,

Thanks for your feedback! I would be honored to be the PMC chair (if no one
objects in the community). I'm also +1 for your proposal to include the
current committer set on the PMC, and to come up with our own lower entry
barriers for committership.

I'll work on the Board Resolution this evening and try and get something
posted for a DISCUSS thread by tomorrow...

Cheers,
Chris
