Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3795) Replace spatial contrib module with LSP's spatial-lucene module
Date Thu, 16 Feb 2012 20:30:59 GMT


Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-3795:

Simon do we really need a code grant here? 

Its my understanding (correct me if i am wrong): the developers involved (David, Ryan, Chris)
are all committers 
with iCLA on file, so is it really any different than any other patch from that perspective?

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).

Without looking at any code myself, if thats really the case I'm +1 on principle because it
means we basically
have an improved spatial module for lucene core with no catch at all. The current code has
not seen much maintenance.

(And i agree, we should be shooting for a proper module/ here, not a contrib).

> 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/.
