Its sad to hear your go, but i hope that the new direction your heading works out.
You have been amazingly patient with having so many developers asking you endless questions. I also did :) so thanks for all of it...
Since Bleve has 2 maintainers via Couchbase, i was thinking with Bluge it's worth trying to get more financial support for you and others to work on it ongoing.
Bluge is quite something, in that there are not many golang libs that do what it does and it would be a shame for it for fall by the wayside.
Have some ideas and also time to devote to it. EU Funding for open source is not quite the right match for Bluge IMHO.
But there are things that can be tried in that and other aspects if you interested.
You are probably ready for a break from it all i expect, but either way you are welcome to contact me and chat about what can be done.
