Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3795) Replace spatial contrib module with LSP's spatial-lucene module
Date Fri, 17 Feb 2012 01:29:59 GMT


Chris Male commented on LUCENE-3795:

Huge +1

Thanks so much David for opening this issue and getting the code to a point where it can be
contributed.  I'm really excited to see this brought into the fold and glad to see support
from others.

As far as LGPL, according to David's description and the title of this jira issue (possible
i did not interpret it correctly,
correct me if so), the he wants to replace lucene/contrib/spatial with the spatial-lucene
project, and that
it has no LGPL ties at all, (only spatial-extras does).

Absolutely.  The portion of the codebase which uses LGPL code is entirely optional and decoupled
from the rest of the code.  From a functional perspective, as David says, its only really
related to polygon support which is hugely powerful but can exist somewhere else if needs

> I propose that Lucene's spatial contrib module be replaced with the spatial-lucene module
within Lucene Spatial Playground (LSP).  LSP has been in development for approximately 1 year
by David Smiley, Ryan McKinley, and Chris Male and we feel it is ready.  LSP is here:
 and the spatial-lucene module is intuitively in svn/trunk/spatial-lucene/.
