Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1142) Updated Snowball package
Date Tue, 19 Aug 2008 14:47:44 GMT


Grant Ingersoll commented on LUCENE-1142:


This is marked as 2.4, but your comment suggests 3.0.  Which do you prefer?  We are, again,
in that tricky spot of how to handle changes where the API is compatible, but the index can

One thing to check, maybe, is how many terms are going to be affected?   Maybe we put this
in now and we mark it in CHANGES.txt that users of Snowball will need to re-index, or at least
thoroughly test to see if there are any issues in their setup.  

I can go either way.
