I am the creator and main developer of OpenSearchServer, an open source search engine hosted at SourceForge.
Because a large part of our community is using the Debian distribution, I think it would be great to have it embedded in the Debian distribution.
OpenSearchServer is hosted at SourceForge:
The application works with TOMCAT6 and any JAVA 5 or JAVA 6 virtual machine. I did my best to fit well with the Tomcat6 package.
I think a good sponsor will be someone who is comfortable with JAVA/TOMCAT environment.
Here are the information needed, copy of the current control file:
Maintainer: Emmanuel Keller <email@example.com>
Build-Depends: java5-runtime-headless | java6-runtime-headless, ant, debhelper (>= 7.0.50~)
Depends: java5-runtime-headless | java6-runtime-headless, tomcat6
Description: An open source search engine and crawler based on best open source technologies
An open source search engine and crawler based on best open source technologies. A stable, high-performance piece of software. It is a modern search engine and a suite of high-powered full text search algorithms.
The tar ball location is: http://opensearchserve.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/opensearchserve/branches/1.2/?view=tar
The package is in the source, in the "debian" sub folder.
I have created the package, doing my best to follow all the rules. I have successfully tested the package on squeeze.
Of course, I am fully available to build, test, develop,...
Thank you for your help and for any feedback.
