The roadmap of the project is determined by Alfresco Product Management in response to customer needs and analysis of the market place. Open source contributions are considered for inclusion based on their quality, relevance to the current roadmap, and our quality assurance backlog.
Alfresco Search Services is made available under the terms of the LGPLv3.
If you are interested in making a large contribution, please reach out to us before starting work so that we can discuss the likelihood of our accepting the contribution. In our experience, most large contributions to the ECM Repository are better implemented as modules.
All contributions should have an associated test case.
