Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3977) generated/duplicated javadocs are wasteful and bloat the release
Date Thu, 12 Apr 2012 22:01:23 GMT


Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-3977:

Besides the trivial patch above (which I think we should do), looking at the big picture
with the 2x duplication, I really think we should totally nuke these javadocs-all tasks.

Really if we have different modules like contrib-analyzers, why can't they link to
the things they depend on (e.g. lucene-core) just like the solr javadocs do?

This is just a matter of fixing the build system and then working towards making
our downloads reasonable right?
