Fwd: RFS: lucene3

Hello all,

I am forwarding a Request For Sponsorship I made on debian-mentors as apparently you guys are the people to ask.

Regarding not using Jan-Pascal van Best's work as a starting point, it is due to having already got a working package done on my own before I was able to find Jan-Pascal's work (mostly due to anonscm.d.o being broken). Jan-Pascal was packaging upstream 3.0.2 while I have used 3.3.0. I have done a thorough search through his packaging to find differences. Most things are in my own packaging or obsoleted by upstream changes, but there are two things remaining which I have noted for inclusion in the next version (OSGi metadata and splitting off -contrib as a new package)

Hello mentors!

I am looking for a sponsor for my package "lucene3".

 * Package name    : lucene3
  Version         : 3.3.0+dfsg-1
  Upstream Author : The Apache Software Foundation
 * URL             : http://lucene.apache.org/java/
 * License         : Apache 2
  Section         : java

To access further information about this package, please visit the
following URL:


Alternatively, one can download the package with dget using this command:

 dget -x http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/l/lucene3/lucene3_3.3.0+dfsg-1.dsc

I would be glad if someone uploaded this package for me.

This package is an incompatible upgrade from the existing lucene2
package, though it was built from scratch rather than updating the
original package. The .changes and .deb files all pass lintian -iI
--pedantic cleanly.

Kind regards,

Mat Scales
