----------------------------------------

Hello again, Simon. Has there been any update as to where I should send the 
code grant? Many thanks.

> Kuromoji code donation - a new Japanese morphological analyzer

>                 Key: LUCENE-3305
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-3305
>             Project: Lucene - Java
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: modules/analysis
>            Reporter: Christian Moen
>            Assignee: Simon Willnauer

> Atilika Inc. (アティリカ株式会社) would like to donate the Kuromoji Japanese 
> morphological analyzer to the Apache Software Foundation in the hope that it 
> will be useful to Lucene and Solr users in Japan and elsewhere.
> The project was started in 2010 since we couldn't find any high-quality, 
> actively maintained and easy-to-use Java-based Japanese morphological 
> analyzers, and these become many of our design goals for Kuromoji.
> Kuromoji also has a segmentation mode that is particularly useful for search, 
> which we hope will interest Lucene and Solr users.  Compound-nouns, such as 
> 関西国際空港 (Kansai International Airport) and 日本経済新聞 (Nikkei Newspaper), are 
> segmented as one token with most analyzers.  As a result, a search for 空港 
> (airport) or 新聞 (newspaper) will not give you a for in these words.  Kuromoji 
> can segment these words into 関西 国際 空港 and 日本 経済 新聞, which is generally what 
> you would want for search and you'll get a hit.
> We also wanted to make sure the technology has a license that makes it 
> compatible with other Apache Software Foundation software to maximize its 
> usefulness.  Kuromoji has an Apache License 2.0 and all code is currently 
> owned by Atilika Inc.  The software has been developed by my good friend and 
> ex-colleague Masaru Hasegawa and myself.
> Kuromoji uses the so-called IPADIC for its dictionary/statistical model and 
> its license terms are described in NOTICE.txt.
> I'll upload code distributions and their corresponding hashes and I'd very 
> much like to start the code grant process.  I'm also happy to provide patches 
> to integrate Kuromoji into the codebase, if you prefer that.
> Please advise on how you'd like me to proceed with this.  Thank you.
