I think you're missing one very important point.  Jerry's search project isn't part of OpenACS, it is an independent project that just happens to run with OpenACS.
Jerry won't make his search project part of OpenACS unless he succeeds in grabbing partial control over the organization.
<p>Thus far Petru, Talli and others have been more than willing to work within the existing OpenACS framework.  They're not trying to take over as a precondition for contributing to the project.

I'd love to have some time to work on this and other project issues.  Currently, though, the organization is paralyzed with this fight over who gets to run the project, those of us who started it or a new set of people.
