The usual answer: it depends :)
Over on I have similar functionality (groups), and I have them as separate

If you want to be able to reindex individual groups separately, you;ll want them in separate
If groups in aggregate will get very large, perhaps keeping them separate is more scalable.
If you want to distribute groups over multiple servers, keep them separate.
If they are heterogeneous (different fields), this may be another reason to keep them separate.

Of course, if some of the above don't hold or are not a requirement, a single group may be
the way to go for you.

Subject: What is more efficient?

If I work with groups, whats the best option do do? Use a multiple lucene
index for every group or is bettter an unique index.
For example:
I'm working with groups of people, and the action to add or delete is in
group level but the search is on all groups.
What do you think is the best implementation in lucene? I have any number of
index limitation in Multisearcher?
