You can package a modern pylucene and take over as the maintainer. Nothing would make me happier.
I'm looking to pylucene package that I need as a dependency for other
pkg. Unfortunately currently it still depends on Python 2.5 so can't be
installed at all. Bugreport about this was filled almost a year ago
Looks like the latest information from Jeff (current maintainer) was in

How this should be handled? I can create new ITP report for python-lucene
package. Any other suggestions?
