The OmSeek project referenced there has been renamed Xapian.  The new
URL is http://www.xapian.org/ - could you update the link?

Xapian actually now uses the Snowball stemmers.  These give slightly
different results to the stemmers we used to supply (which were also
implemented by Martin Porter), but we believe the Snowball stemmers'
results to be generally better.

Cheers,
