Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-5863) Generate backwards compatibility indexes for all 4.x releases
Date Wed, 10 Sep 2014 17:22:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-5863?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14128763#comment-14128763

Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-5863:
--------------------------------------------

I think adding this to smoke tester is ok?  Smoke tester is run by jenkins periodically so
if a release somehow gets out w/o TestBackCompat being updated, we'll know before the next
release.

I like that the check is "end to end" (does not know about / make assumptions about implementation
details like version constants).  It's also not that heavy: loads the URL from apache.org,
runs 2 BWC tests, and then checks that the versions it saw are the same ...

I agree it's somewhat redundant with the one-time version check plus ongoing check for each
release, but I think having some redundancy here is actually really important (who tests the
test testers!).

But separately I agree we should also have tests to confirm there is a version constant for
every still-supported release.

> Currently the versioning here is a total mess, and its inconsistent across bugfix releases.
> We should just generate back compat indexes for every release: regardless of whether
the index format changed, even for bugfix releases. This ensures at least we try to test that
the back compat is working.
