Marvin,

it will be an honor to work with you on this project. What shall we call it?

    How about "MonkSearch", if it's available? Have you ever set up a code.google.com project? I haven't.

    I figure we should set things up like a standard CPAN distro. Most of the code in module files, utility scripts in bin/, yada yada. Sound good? We can call the Perl modules whatever we want at first -- it doesn't matter until there's a public API, which there may never be.

    Are you willing to play the role of lead developer on the project? I believe you're subscribed to the KinoSearch list, so you've seen how collaborations have gone there -- there's often some gory back end stuff that falls to me. For this project, I figure I'll end up spending significant time tweaking the ranking algo in response to user feedback once we have everything in place. In anticipation of that, it would be great if you could take responsibility for most of the high level architecture. I think we'll have a more fruitful collaboration if you own the code and I play a secondary role.

      I have never set one up at code.google.com before either, but here it is: http://code.google.com/p/monk-search/ -- it seems easy to use so far. What is your google ID so that I can add you?

      Standard CPAN distro sounds like a plan.

      I can certainly play the role :-)... The gory back end stuff will have to fall to you -- although I hope to learn more about KinoSearch's inner workings by the time we have something usable.

      I will create a "brain-dump" wiki page and we can derive the list of components and stuff we need to do from there. The first order of business will of course be to decide how and what to index. We will probably also want to use 0.20?

        Eh, we could just slap something together and it would work great!

        Your original notion was right on the money: this material is well-suited for full-text search. A stock KS install, simply adapting the KS sample apps for the additional fields, and you'd be in business.

        We will probably also want to use 0.20?

        Yeah, definitely. We want sorting and range filters.

        I'm also interested in helping.

        As a reference, I'm just playing around with Jifty and KinoSearch combination for a while, and I'm very very happy with KinoSearch 0.20 features and performance.

        It might also be useful to create compressed archive of all XML pages on PerlMonks for other search engine enthusiasts :-)
