PhpDig < http://www.phpdig.net/ > might still have some active development
and is probably more modern. I don't know if Entropy Search is Open Source,
but I assume it is. Regarding the latter point, external (third-party)
search engines will not have interest in indices which you generate locally.
Google sitemaps are the closest thing, but they are associated with crawling
patterns, not search results.
