Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3454) rename optimize to a less cool-sounding name
Date Sun, 25 Sep 2011 16:02:26 GMT


Shai Erera commented on LUCENE-3454:

It's just that maybeMerge feels like asking a question, to which you expect an answer. Why
is it so important to have this 'maybe' or 'ifNeeded' in the API? just like optimize(), MP
decides what to merge, and optimize() can end up doing nothing as well ...

Why do we have IR.reopen and not maybeReopen? That that it returns something is not much different
than IW.merge(), IMO.

system? but this probably just results in wasted time and resources.
