Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1793) remove custom encoding support in Greek/Russian Analyzers
Date Mon, 10 Aug 2009 03:36:14 GMT

DM Smith commented on LUCENE-1793:
----------------------------------

I wasn't thinking about any encoding in particular. It was in reference to Uwe's comment:

bq. You are right, to reduce index size, it would be good, to also support other encodings
in addition to UTF-8 for storage of term text.

I think that having other encodings can be problematic. Problems that Unicode solves. But
if the idea is worthy of discussion then a new issue would be a better place to house it.


Regarding BOCU it is a patented algorithm requiring a license from IBM for implementation.
I gather that it is part of ICU. Not sure if either is a big deal or not.

> The Greek and Russian analyzers support custom encodings such as KOI-8, they define things
like Lowercase and tokenization for these.
> I think that analyzers should support unicode and that conversion/handling of other charsets
belongs somewhere else. 
> I would like to deprecate/remove the support for these other encodings.
