Hi Folks,

I have posted an updated candidate for the Apache Nutch 1.1 release. The
source code is at:

The major difference between this release and rc #1 is the application of
NUTCH-812 - incorrectly uses the Generator API resulting in NPE -
as well as some commits by Sami Siren to fix missing ASL license headers.

For more detailed information, see the included CHANGES.txt file for details
on release contents and latest changes. The release was made using the Nutch
release process, documented on the Wiki here:

A Nutch 1.1 tag is at:

There was a request by Sami Siren that the tutorial be updated to reflect
the fact that this release is a source-only release, as well as a request to
integrate RAT into the build, however, in the interest of getting this 1.1
out and getting going on the Nutch TLP, my proposal is:

* update the docs independent of this release (the tutorial as it exists
right now says 0.7 on it anyways and doesn't look like it's been updated in
a while, so I think users can live with what's there and support on

* begin source only releases in general since we've long had the debate as
to the size of the Nutch release. Most folks that use Nutch are likely
familiar with running ant IMHO.

* run RAT and integrate into the build


Please vote on releasing these packages as Apache Nutch 1.1. The vote is
open for the next 72 hours.

Since Nutch is now a TLP and has its own PMC, there is a question of who are
the binding release VOTES in this particular thread. My gut reaction is that
since I started this release while we were under the Lucene PMC, for
continuity purposes, only votes from Lucene PMC are binding, but everyone
(especially newly minted Nutch PMC members!) are welcome to check the
release candidate and voice their approval or disapproval. The vote passes
if at least three binding +1 votes are cast.

[ ] +1 Release the packages as Apache Nutch 1.1.

[ ] -1 Do not release the packages because...



P.S. Here is my +1.
