Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3795) Replace spatial contrib module with LSP's spatial-lucene module
Date Fri, 02 Mar 2012 13:45:59 GMT


Jan Høydahl commented on LUCENE-3795:

First, Ryan and David, I think you've done a great job with all this code and a million thanks
for donating.

I think I also see the rationale behind splitting the more general spatial4j core into a separate
project, hoping that it will attract far more users than only Lucene. While that may happen
one day, perhaps we should take one step at a time, letting spatial4j start its life as part
of Lucene-java (as a separate module or contrib?), and after a year or so, when it is more
mature, cast a vote for whether it shuold become a Lucene sub-project, join Incubator as a
new project, join as a library within  Apache commons project (commons-spatial), move to GitHub
with all Lucene committers invited as committers) or whatever.

commons-spatial sounds attractive to me :)

> 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/.
