Subject understanding the need to reindex a document
Date Mon, 22 Oct 2012 19:23:12 GMT
so there are lots of Qs that are asked about wanting to modify a lucene 
document (i.e. remove fields, add fields....) but are told that one 
needs to reindex.

No one ever answers the technical Q of why this is, and I'm interested 
in that.  presumambly because documents aren't stored as documents or 
even in any form that could be reassembled into a document, but I'm 
interested in what the actual answer is.
