I would be developing the "Course Search" plugin for Moodle as part of
the GSoC programme. Its basically Integration of Apache Solr with
moodle course schema. The deliverable includes a functional advance
search plugin for Moodle that can be installed and configured to
substitute basic core search.
As a intial step I have created the fork of the theme clean, overrided
the core_course_renderer and pushed some initial code on this https://github.com/shashirepo/moodle-theme_cleantheme
I would be happy to receive feedback & suggestions for the development
of this plugin.
