Subject Re: sorting tokenized field
Date Fri, 10 Dec 2004 20:33:40 GMT
Since I am not aware of the lucene code much, I couldn't make much out of 
your patch. But is this patch already tested and proved to be efficient? If 
so, why can't it be merge into the lucene code and made it part of the 
release. I think the bug is valid. Its very likely that people want to sort 
on tokenized fields.

If I apply this patch to lucene code and use it for myself, I will have hard 
time managing it in future (while upgrading lucene library). If the pathc is 
applied to lucene release code, it would be very easy for the lucene users.

If possible, can someone explain what the path does? I am trying to 
understand what exactly changed but could not figrue out.
