Subject Documentation improvements leading up to 2.9
Date Thu, 23 Jul 2009 00:30:29 GMT

Hey everybody,

It looks like we might actually see Lucene 2.9.0 get released "soon" ... 
there are less then 20 open issues remaining, and several of those are 
just waiting on one blocker.

Now's the time when everybody who has been asking "when is 2.9 going to be 
released?!?!?!?!?!" has an opportunity to chip in and help make it a good 
release: by reviewing documentation.

The javadocs are built every night off the trunk.  The more people we have 
looking at the new docs *now* and checking them for mistakes (ommisions, 
contradictions, typos, etc...) the better the release will be, and the 
more likely we are to spot problems *before* the release... particular, a lot of new APIs have been introduced since 2.4, and a 
lot of old APIs have been deprecated, so having users spot check that the 
docs for hte new APIs, and the @deprecation docs for the old APIs, make 
sense is particularly important.

If you spot any problems, please open a bug in Jira.  Patches are the 
best way to make suggested improvements, but even just opening an issue 
that says "Javadocs for FooBarBaz.methodName say .... but should say ..." 
are helpful.  (if you don't know how to open a Jira issue, you can always 
just reply to this message with your feedback as a last resort)
