Subject [jira] [Created] (LUCENE-5924) Rename checkindex's -fix option
Date Thu, 04 Sep 2014 19:33:51 GMT
Robert Muir created LUCENE-5924:

             Summary: Rename checkindex's -fix option
                 Key: LUCENE-5924
             Project: Lucene - Core
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Robert Muir

This option is dangerous. It sounds so good though that people are quick to use it, but it
definitely drops entire segments.

The commandline flag should be someting other than -fix (e.g. -exorcise).

I dont agree with the current description of the option either. True, it does have **WARNING**
but I think it should read more like the scary options in 'man hdparm'.

Like hdparm, we could fail if you provide it with an even more ridiculous warning, and make
you run again with --yes-i-really-know-what-i-am-doing as well.
