             Summary: Rename SpatialPrefixTree's "Node" back to "Cell"
                 Key: LUCENE-4742
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-4742
             Project: Lucene - Core
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: modules/spatial
            Reporter: David Smiley
            Priority: Trivial


SpatialPrefixTree makes "Node"s which are basically a rectangular spatial region that is more
colloquially referred to as a "Cell".  It was named "Cell" in the first place and for whatever
reason, Ryan and/or Chris renamed it as part of extracting it to a top level class from an
inner class.  Most comments and variable names still use the "cell" terminology.  I'm working
on an algorithm that keeps track of a tree of "nodes" and it has gotten confusing which kind
of node I'm referring to, as each Node has one cell.

In maybe a week or so if there isn't discussion to the contrary, I'm going to commit a rename
it back to "Cell".  And... while we're on this naming subject, perhaps "SpatialPrefixTree"
could be named "SpatialGrid" ?  FWIW the variables referring to it are always "grid".
