Subject [codec] getting the bmpm code out there
Date Thu, 11 Aug 2011 18:38:26 GMT

As those of you who've been following the CODEC-125 ticket will know, with
Greg's help I've got a port of the beider morse phonetic
matching (bmpm) algorithm in as a string encoder. As far as I can tell, it's
ready for people to use and abuse. It ideally needs more test-case words,
but to the best of my knowledge it doesn't have any horrendous bugs or
performance issues.

The discussion on the ticket started to stray off bmpm and on to policy for
releases and changing APIs, and Sebb said we should discuss it on the list.
So, here we are.

Ideally, I'd like there to be a release of commons-codec some time soon so
that users can start to try out bmpm right away, and so that we can start
the process of adding it to the list of supported indexing methods in solr.
What do people think?
