I have gotten asked in previous conversations if there are standard synonym files for different product sets and industries for the Solr search engine. Interestingly enough I could not find anything out there so I decided to create an online repository on GitHub for such files. I envision files for all kinds of industries and product sets. I put some ideas out there and if anyone else has more please share with the community. If you happen to have a large set of synonyms today also share those!
You can check out the repository here.
SugarCRM has acquired iExtensions, which makes customer relationship management (CRM) software for IBM Lotus Notes users, in a bid to attract more enterprise customers and compete better against bigger rivals like Salesforce.com and Microsoft.
Notes users will be able to synchronize their contacts and calendar entries between SugarCRM and Notes, for example, and link emails and calendar entries in Notes to particular customer records in SugarCRM, he said. The company had already built some integration with LotusLive, and the acquisition will accelerate its Lotus integration plans by about a year, officials said. The terms of the deal weren’t disclosed.

As a community, the Lotus community is very strong. We all get involved with things like OpenNTF, blogs, tweets, etc. One place I see Lotus fall short is getting involved with the many technologies our core Lotus products use – like OSGI, Eclipse, CKEditor, and Dojo.
