Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-5944) move trunk to 6.x, create branch_5x
Date Thu, 18 Sep 2014 16:56:35 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-5944?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14139164#comment-14139164

Ryan Ernst commented on LUCENE-5944:
------------------------------------

bq. I wonder when would the code in trunk (that already exists, and is different from 4x (now
5x)) be released.

When 6.0 is released? Part of the reason for this is a lot of very scary changes that were
being backported into 4.11, that should have been in a major release.  Having a tighter backcompat
policy in the future (now starting with 6.x I guess) would help us do releases more quickly
(IMO, around every year or a little more). See LUCENE-5940 that Uwe mentioned earlier here.
 Simply releasing 5.0 from trunk would have been more controversial (probably) since it has
a lot of changes that still need to be cleaned up (StoredDocument/IndexedDocument, what happens
with solr war/nowar, etc).

> In order to actually add real features (as opposed to just spending 24/7 fixing bugs
and back compat), I need a trunk that doesn't have the back compat handcuffs.
> In the meantime, we should rename the current trunk (which is totally tied down in back
compat already, without even a single release!) to branch_5x while you guys (i wont be doing
any back compat anymore) figure out what you want to do with the back compat policly.
