Subject Re: Proposal about Version API "relaxation"
Date Thu, 15 Apr 2010 19:13:00 GMT
Not sure if plain users are allowed/encouraged to post in this list,
but wanted to mention (just an opinion from a happy user), as other
users have, that not all of us can reindex just like that. It would
not be 10 min for one of our installations for sure...

First, i would need to implement some code to reindex, cause my source
data is postprocessed/compressed/encrypted/moved after it arrives to
the application, so I would need to retrieve all etc. And then
reindexing it would take days.
