what was the problem? I personally never had any problems importing the  
Hibernate Search
project. Admittedly I am using Idea, but I know Sanne is using Eclipse and  
he never mentioned
any problems.

So you suggest hibernate-search-core as module and artifact name? I guess  
that's a fair
request. I think the reason for the main module being called  
"hibernate-search" is that
for a long time we only had one single relevant module (the testing ones  
don't count imo).
With hibernate-search-analyzers and especially hibernate-search-infinispan  
around it might
be at the time to change the module name.

The only drawback is that people are by now used for the main artifact  
being called hibernate-search.
Switching to hibernate-search-core will create even more confusion in the  
maven repositories.

Not sure what the others think. The importing of the current project  
though should not be
affected either way.
