Subject Re: Proposal about Version API "relaxation"

+1 on the Analyzers as well.

Earwin, I think I don't mind if we introduce migrate() elsewhere rather than
on IW. What I meant to say is that if we stick w/ index format back-compat
and ongoing migration, then such a method would be useful on IW for
customers to call to ensure they're on the latest version.
But if the majority here agree w/ a standalone tool, then I'm ok if it sits

Grant, I'm all for 'just doing it and see what happens'. But I think we need
to at least decide what we're going to do so it's clear to everyone. Because
I'd like to know if I'm about to propose an index format change, whether I
need to build migration tool or not. Actually, I'd like to know if people
like Robert (basically those who have no problem to reindex and don't
understand the fuss around it) will want to change the index format - can I
count on them to be asked to provide such tool? That's to me a policy we
should decide on ... whatever the consequences.

But +1 for changing something ! Analyzers at first, API second.
