Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-2759) We should never open an IndexInput when an IndexOutput is still open
Date Sun, 14 Nov 2010 23:30:15 GMT


Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-2759:

bq. RT's usage of doc stores, ie, reading from them while they're still being written to will
likely break this.

True, we need to cross that bridge w/ RT.

Actually I think Michael & I discussed it already on an issue but I can't remember where.
