Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1898) Decide if we should remove lines numbers from latest Changes
Date Tue, 08 Sep 2009 12:09:57 GMT

Uwe Schindler commented on LUCENE-1898:
---------------------------------------

+1 That would be really nice. We always have this duplicate numbers, cascading renumbering
and so on. I think, numbering of items is part of the presentation layer (like in XHTML where
you have numbered lists)

> As Lucene dev has grown, a new issue has arisen - many times, new changes invalidate
old changes. A proper changes file should just list the changes from the last version, not
document the dev life of the issues. Keeping changes in proper order now requires a lot of
renumbering sometimes. The numbers have no real meaning and could be added to more rich versions
(such as the html version) automatically if desired.
> I think an * makes a good replacement myself. The issues already have ids that are stable,
rather than the current, decorational numbers which are subject to change over a dev cycle.
> I think we should replace the numbers with an asterix for the 2.9 section and going forward
(ie 4. becomes *).
> If we don't get consensus very quickly, this issue won't block.
