Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-2094) Prepare CharArraySet for Unicode 4.0
Date Tue, 01 Dec 2009 10:07:20 GMT


Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-2094:

bq. I consider this as a misunderstanding caused by too much instant messaging.

We need to strive to keep technical discussions public, for this reason.  If you ever find
yourself discussing technical direction of changes to Lucene, privately, kick yourself and
others near you and then take it back to the list :)

You all probably felt that you reached consensus (over IM), but to the rest of us, it suddenly
felt like you committed while we were still debating the approach.  Like Mark, I'm certainly
not saying anything bad was done, but, it's a dangerous precedent that "consensus reached
in private is then acted on in public without corresponding public consensus".

Erring on the side of caution, moving more slowly, when consensus is iffy, is best.  Mark's
original idea -- to separately open the question of "hey let's commit this as it stands now
and then debate the Version vs separate boolean separately" would've been a good approach,
I think.

Also, I think other Apache communities have public chats, where devs/contributors/users can
hang out and discuss stuff, and it's well publicized that this is the standard place where
things are discussed, anyone can join in, etc.  We could consider taking that step for Lucene?
 Those of us who are online can then hang out.  I don't like that it's not archived/searchable
(or... is it?  Anyone know what other communities do?  EG, is there a way to set up an IRC
channel and have it archived?).  IM clearly is a nice, fast interactive way to discuss things,
far better than email / appending to Jira issues.

> CharArraySet does lowercaseing if created with the correspondent flag. This causes that
 String / char[] with uncode 4 chars which are in the set can not be retrieved in "ignorecase"
