Open source eDiscovery - preparing for beta release

We had good interest and feedback so far (thank you, everybody!), and we are preparing for a beta release, where the software actually does some useful work.

I have put a number of documentation pages on the project's wiki. I have also added the basic culling on the text of the documents.

The two enhancements that remain for beta are

  • organizing metadata into standard fields (that is in addition to the fact that all metadata, standard or not, is extracted); and
  • processing emails from a PST file.
I have taken the decision to stop putting the documentation into the text-based files in the project itself, and put it on the GitHub's wiki instead. This means being integrated into GitHub and relying on it, but what of it? - it is very convenient for editing.
