Subject Re: Proposal for changing Lucene's backwards-compatibility policy
Date Fri, 30 Oct 2009 10:54:02 GMT
My vote is for option A. It's generally implied that a major version brings
in major changes (api as well as others), while the minor is, well, minor.
Why should that be broken for lucene? It would become increasingly difficult
for the lucene user community to catch up if they skipped one or two minors,
if that rule is broken.
