Subject Re: [csv] Commons CSV 3.5 released!
Date Tue, 06 Mar 2012 02:03:44 GMT
Not sure I understand the use of "forked" here.

Solr needed CSV handing.  Rather than just roll our own, I looked at
commons-csv and put a *lot* of time and effort into improving it.  I
didn't have time to follow through with a complete release of
commons-csv, so we just included a snapsot in Solr.  It's an internal
implementation detail, and hopefully you'll all agree that commons-csv
has benefited.  There have been *no* custom additions or anything else
- it's just a snapshot.

Of course with the whole maven thing it almost makes it almost look
like a release.  I'm not a maven guy  (and I don't particularly care
for it).  If there's something wrong with the maven config, hopefully
you can explain that to the Lucene/Solr maven guys.  To me, it's
simply an implementation detail within solr and definitely shouldn't
be advertised as any kind of official release on it's own.

ps: I'm away for the week in Korea w/ limited internet access, so I'll
most likely be unable to respond personally to any followups.
