Making Money In Open Source: Does It Matter? 

,----[ Quote ]
| Roughly, the participants in the discussion 
| can be split into three camps. On one side, 
| there were those who went gaga over how 
| open source is successfully making money 
| and, on the other end, there were skeptics 
| who were wondering why Open Source is not 
| making big bucks like their proprietary 
| counterparts. In between these two camps 
| were the so called âmoderatesâ who argued 
| that open source need not make big money 
| but they enable others, like Web 2.0 
| vendors and the current day cloud vendors, 
| make big bucks. They even showed the 
| example of how open source is single 
| handedly keeping Wall Street running and, 
| thereby, helping some people make really 
| big bucks.


Lucene and Solr Development Have Merged

,----[ Quote ]
| The Lucene community has recently decided 
| to merge the development of two of its sub-
| projects â Lucene->Java and Lucene->Solr. 
| Both code bases now sit under the same 
| trunk in svn and Solr actually runs 
| straight off the latest Lucene code at all 
| times. This is just a merge of development 
| though. Release artifacts will remain 
| separate: Lucene will remain a core search 
| engine Java library and Solr will remain a 
| search server built on top of Lucene. From 
| a user perspective, things will be much the 
| same as they were â just better.
