I've talked to the developers over there before, and they are looking to
build up flock any way they can, I'm sure they wouldn't have an issue,
the flock license is one of those where you have to sign a funny
contract to contribute code, but lucene is an open format. As of the 0.7
or 'Cardnial' release series, flock uses Clucene 1.9. If you wanna check
it out, your index is in the folder 'historysearch' in the flock profile
Whats really the best thing about it is that because the indexing is all
in C and part of the browser, they have the scheduling etc. to make it
not interfere with the browsing experience at all.
Is there some command line tool to just dump the contents of lucene
index into text form or something? I can't seem to find much, but again,
its not something I'm exactly experienced with.
