Subject Re: Lucene Java 2.9.2

:  This begs the
: question, if Lucene.Net takes just this one patch, than Lucene.Net 2.9.1 is
: now (which I personally don't like to see happening as I prefer to
: see a 1-to-1 release match).

As a general comment on this topic: I would suggest that if the goal of 
Lucene.Net is to be a 1-to-1 port (which seems like a good goal, but 
is certainly not mandatory if the Lucene.Net community has other 
ambitions) then the cleanest thing for users would be to keep the version 
numbers in sync 1-to-1.

it reasises some questions about what to do if a bug is discovered in the 
*porting*.  ie: if after "Lucene.Net 2.9.2" is released, it's discovered 
that there was a glitch, and it doesn't actually match the behavior of 
Lucene-JAva 2.9.2" what should be done? ... "Lucene.Net 2.9.3" and 
"Lucene.Net" could all concivably conflict with version numbers 
Lucene-Java *might* someday release.

Having an anotaiton strategy that doesn't extend the dot notation 
used by Lucene-Java might make sense (ie: "Lucene.Net 2.9.2-a"
