Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-2599) Deprecate Spatial Contrib
Date Thu, 01 Sep 2011 14:10:10 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-2599?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13095303#comment-13095303
] 

Chris Male commented on LUCENE-2599:
------------------------------------

I'd like to come to an agreement here and finish this off as to make a clear statement about
spatial in Lucene 4.

It seems we have a few options in front of us now:

- Deprecate in 3x, nuke fully in trunk
- Deprecate in 3x and in trunk, moving the code to the sandbox
- Deprecate in 3x and in trunk and leave the code where it is
- Do nothing

Robert's concern that removing the contrib entirely without providing an alternative seems
very reasonable.  But as I said in February, I'm very wary of continuing to release code which
has so many problems.  As such, I favour deprecating in 3x and in trunk and sandboxing the
code wit big warnings that it'll go when we have a better solution.

Any opinions? Robert? David?

> The spatial contrib is blighted by bugs.  The latest series, found by Grant and discussed
[here|http://search.lucidimagination.com/search/document/c32e81783642df47/spatial_rethinking_cartesian_tiers_implementation]
shows that we need to re-think the cartesian tier implementation.
> Given the need to create a spatial module containing code taken from both lucene and
Solr, it makes sense to deprecate the spatial contrib, and start from scratch in the new module.
