I’m going to be doing a lightning talk tonight at the Chicago Python Group about pylucene. pylucene essentially lets you use the popular Lucene indexing library (Java) in Python. No time limit has been set for the lightning talks (and mjd won’t be there with his gong) but I hope to quickly cover how to index an mbox with pylucene in 5 minutes. There are slides, which are there mainly as cue cards.
