Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-4446) Switch to BlockPostingsFormat for Lucene 4.1
Date Fri, 12 Oct 2012 00:53:03 GMT


Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-4446:

I think we are good here to switch over.

I reviewed this PostingsFormat and we improved the docs, and got thru some little issues.
Test coverage is now much better (
Besides, the whole thing has been baking for a long time without any test failures.

I'll make a branch to cut this one over and see what it looks like.

> The code (in my opinion) is actually a lot simpler than the current postings format,
its faster, the indexes are smaller, and so on.
> We should probably spend some time just going over the code and adding some more tests
and such but I think its time to start looking at cutting over.
