As of Auguest 07, 2008, wpSearch is officially accepting contributions and developers. You may think that wpSearch is a small project, but there are many factors that come into play in its development. Keeping wpSearch up-to-date with the latest version of Zend Lucene is important, as well as maintaining the homebrew Standard Analyzer for for wpSearch. The core code could use some reorganization, and user wishlists can get pretty demanding, even when only considering the most useful features.
