Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3164) consolidate various CHANGES.txt into two files: lucene and solr
Date Tue, 31 May 2011 04:43:47 GMT


Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-3164:

There is a risk that changes in contribs/modules would clutter the core changes. For example,
today, even small changes in contrib/benchmark are listed in the changes file. But when this
becomes part of the global changes file, not sure if all bm changes would be adequate to be
listed there?

Well, I agree there is that risk, especially if releases continue to be yearly instead of
more often.

However, I think if we release more often, the risk subsides, because we would be presenting
regular releases with a manageable set of consolidated CHANGES.

In other words, if you combine the core+contrib+benchmark+grouping changes in 3.2, is it really
I think the same goes for the solr changes.

Personally, if I was looking at the lucene CHANGES for version X, I would want to know that
there is a new NRTCachingDirectory, that there are performance improvements to the Highlighter,
and that lucene now supports result grouping...

> There are CHANGES.txt files everywhere: lucene/contrib has a CHANGES.txt, the benchmark
package has its own CHANGES.txt, in trunk all the modules have their own CHANGES.txt, and
each solr contrib has its own CHANGES.txt
> I propose we merge these files into a CHANGES.txt for each "product" we make. so that
means lucene/CHANGES.txt and solr/CHANGES.txt
