Developer Discussion: dev@lucene
This is the list where participating developers of the Java Lucene project meet and discuss issues concerning Lucene/Solr internals, code changes/additions, etc.
NOTE: Please do not send mail to this list with usage questions or configuration questions and problems; that is what the java-user and solr-user mailing lists are for.
Commit Notifications: commits@lucene
This is an automated announcement only list where notifications about every Lucene/Solr commit are sent.
General Discussion: general@lucene
This list is for broader questions and discussions about the Lucene project, announcements, and for questions from users who have no idea where to get started (Lucene-Core?, Solr? PyLucene?)
There are two primary IRC channels dedicated to Lucene at freenode.net.
- #lucene -- Channel for user questions
- #lucene-dev -- Logged Channel for Lucene development questions
The IRC channel can be used for online discussion about Lucene related stuff, but developers should be careful to transfer all the official decisions or useful discussions to the issue tracking system.
The Lucene Wiki maintains a list of searchable mailing list archives at http://wiki.apache.org/lucene-java/MailingListArchives. No endorsement is implied by the listing of an archive on the Wiki.
Other Mailing Lists
Each Lucene project maintains its own mailing lists. Please refer to the project you are interested in for details on subscribing to its mailing list.
