All is good. I just had a small procmail accident :)
Yes, activity has been light, the focus being on the move to Lucene which is

This is my experience as well. JCC has simplified things for me
considerably. Yes, I wrote it, so I'm biased, but I've been using it in
other projects than just PyLucene and it's worked quite well.
For example, I use it to write servlets in Python and run them under Tomcat,
a Java servlet engine.
