  Description     : distributed web crawler and search engine

YaCy is a scalable personal web crawler and web search engine. One YaCy 
installation can organize more than 10 million documents, but YaCy can 
operate search clusters of unlimited size.

YaCy has a peer-to-peer web index exchange interface and it does not need a 
central server. Web crawls can be done collaborative with all other YaCy 
peers. Resulting indexes are organized in a distributed hash table, and 
search requests are pointed efficiently to specific, index-hosting peers.

YaCy can not only index texts from various file formats but also from 
different media contents. A search result shows interesting text, image, 
audio and video content with direct links to OGG, MP3, and video files.

Because YaCy is fully distributed, search results cannot be completely 
censored, only filtered by single peer owners. However, in a privatly 
operated search network the software provides a strong functionality to 
control the content of the search cluster. In a public search network, a user 
is anonymous because there is no central point where all search requests can 
be stored.

YaCy has a large number of users running their own peer to create a 
independent and open search engine. The standard YaCy release is configured 
in such a way that the software joins this public network. The software has a 
number of community function like a co-operative bookmark system, a news, 
blog and built-in wiki system.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of yacy back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

If you are still interested in adopting yacy, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 452422 ITP: yacy -- distributed web crawler and search engine
 owner 452422 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <452422@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,

New project information:

Homepage: http://yacy.net/
Gitorious project:  http://gitorious.org/yacy/

Following the recent FSFE campaign, I grabbed yacy from the git repo of
RC1:

  git://gitorious.org/yacy/rc1.git

It includes a debian/ subdirectory. Standards-Version 3.7.2 .
With minor changes I managed to build it. It basically works. Package
installed fine. It icludes a host of embedded libraries:

$ ls lib/*.jar
lib/activation.jar
lib/apache-mime4j-0.6.jar
lib/apache-solr-solrj-3.4.0.jar
lib/bcmail-jdk15-145.jar
lib/bcprov-jdk15-145.jar
lib/bzip2.jar
lib/commons-codec-1.4.jar
lib/commons-fileupload-1.2.2.jar
lib/commons-httpclient-3.1.jar
lib/commons-io-2.0.1.jar
lib/commons-jxpath-1.3.jar
lib/commons-logging-1.1.1.jar
lib/fontbox-1.6.0.jar
lib/geronimo-stax-api_1.0_spec-1.0.1.jar
lib/httpclient-4.1.2.jar
lib/httpcore-4.1.3.jar
lib/httpmime-4.1.2.jar
lib/icu4j-core.jar
lib/J7Zip-modified.jar

lib/pdfbox-1.6.0.jar
lib/poi-3.6-20091214.jar
lib/poi-scratchpad-3.6-20091214.jar
lib/servlet-api.jar
lib/slf4j-api-1.6.1.jar
lib/slf4j-jdk14-1.6.1.jar
lib/webcat-0.1-swf.jar
lib/wstx-asl-3.2.7.jar
lib/xercesImpl.jar
lib/xml-apis.jar
lib/yacycore.jar  # Only one generated at runtime

I suppose many of them are already included in Debian.

(...)

Is there any progress on this package? I know next to nothing about java,
but I would be willing to at least take a look if the packaging were put in
a publicly accessible repository, so that each person can contribute one
little bit and, perhaps, have yacy in Debian.


Regards,
