I had a few questions regarding the lucene version bundled with gs
1. Version of lucene
2. Can I have lucene(which runs as an independent application outside
greenstone) pick up the indexes built by the lucene version bundled with
greenstone? Is there a way I can do this?
3. The code for converting to gs format seems to be bundled with the
lucenwrapper.jar file. I think it will be useful to seperate lucene from
the converters, so users can upgrade to newer version of lucene without
having to modify anything else. Just a suggestion!!!
