Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-3619) Rename 'example' dir to 'server' and pull examples into an 'examples' directory
Date Thu, 20 Nov 2014 03:18:35 GMT


Alexandre Rafalovitch commented on SOLR-3619:

I am testing the new example layout and it just hit me that I never quite thought through
the configsets for this scenario.

Specifically, if we create a schemaless example now and post a document to it, the baseline
configuration (in configset) is forever changed even if we then remove the created collection
directory. So, we no longer have a gold master.

For some reason, I thought we will create a new collection from that config set, but that
every collection will be a *clone* of the configuration in the configset and the original
will never be changed. Instead, it is a configuration by reference, which is shared between
all collections using it.

So, it feels that now the cost of experimentation is actually higher then when people copied
an example directory. Did I miss a part of discussion where this tradeoff was decided to be
a good thing?
