Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-2981) Review and potentially remove unused/unsupported Contribs
Date Wed, 18 May 2011 21:00:48 GMT


Steven Rowe commented on LUCENE-2981:

FYI, LEGAL-82 includes mention of Lucene's dependency on a Berkeley DB lib; on that issue,
Sam Ruby says, in answer to the question of the legitimacy of dependency on BDB (along with
other "Category X" works): "the short answer is no".

 We should review whether they are even pertinent these days and potentially deprecate and
remove them.
> One of the things we did in Mahout when bringing in Colt code was to mark all code that
didn't have tests as @deprecated and then we removed the deprecation once tests were added.
 Those that didn't get tests added over about a 6 mos. period of time were removed.
