I would like to provide Greenstone DL functionality to a customer
of mine who will require that the code be evaluated by a US company,
found to be free of malicious code, and guaranteed. I own a small
US Natural Language Processing company and know of another US
company which specializes in computer security and may be able to
review the code.
Has anyone else already vetted any version of Greenstone? If so,
does anyone offer a guarantee? I'd like to minimize duplication of
What we'd like to do with GSDL is adapt it such that a user can
specify that a given search term or clause within a complex query
be handled by a special purpose matcher. The user would be able
to ask for all documents containing A and B and C, for instance,
but clause C would be evaluated by the special-purpose matcher
which might allow for spelling errors.
Has anyone else adapted the user interface and underlying search
routines to allow for plugging-in special purpose matchers? I'd
like to avoid duplication of effort here, as well.
Is anyone interested in collaborating?
I have contacted the Greenstone3 list with a similar inquiry.
There will be obvious benefits in G3, so if no G2 version has been
vetted or adapted as we will require, then perhaps we'll go with G3,
even though it's an Alpha release only at this point.
