Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-793) Javadocs should explain possible causes for IOExceptions

Hoss Man commented on LUCENE-793:
---------------------------------

> Since these really are cases of severe index corruption I thought it
> best to throw CorruptIndexException instead? 

no disagreement, i'm just not clear on why "CorruptIndexException" (which is a completley
new Exception type created by your patch correct?) should be a subclass of IOException instead
of IllegalStateException.

> Most methods in Lucene reserve the right to throw an IOException.  This can occur for
nearly all methods from low level problems like wrong permissions, transient IO errors, bad
hard drive or corrupted file system, corrupted index, etc, but for some methods there are
also more interesting causes that we should try to document.
