= Proposed System Wide Change: Elasticsearch =

Change owner(s): Jiri Vanek <jvanek at rehat.com>

Goal of this change is to pack Elasticsearch into main Fedora repo. 

== Detailed Description ==
The Elasticsearch [1] is fully-featured self-standing opensource [2] indexing 
server. Many people and many tools do use it. And many people do want it in 
Fedora. Aim of this Change is to make elastic search available by simple yum 
install elasticsearch, and of course enable it as dependence. To build a 
custom indexing tool on top of elastic search is more easy than current 
upstream install and download. 

== Scope ==
* Proposal owners:
** pack Elasticsearch - nearly done - see RHBZ#902086
** make it somehow works
** verify it works
** tune list of crucial dependencies
** enable Elasticsearch as service - something what have to be decided

* Other developers: 
** '''This is crucial part of this proposal'''
** Elastic search is extremely tuned application, and like it, its 
dependencies must be strictly kept in correct versions
** Currently known troublemakers:
*** lucene
*** netty3
*** sigar
*** compress-lzf
*** guava (currently needed 18, avaiable 17)

* Release engineering: 
** Nothing I'm aware about.

* Policies and guidelines: 
** Nothing I'm aware about.
** maybe... fedora is going by way - keep as updated as possible, if it  
breaks something, that something have to be fixed. This is not best for ES. 
Maybe ES can et some helping exception?
