Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-6259) Remove dependencies from binary releases
Date Fri, 20 Feb 2015 09:24:12 GMT


selckin commented on LUCENE-6259:

I understand maven isn't very popular, but putting a pom somewhere that downloads all the
deps when you execute 'mvn' would be very simple

> In LUCENE-6247, one idea discussed to decrease the size of release artifacts was to remove
the inclusion of dependencies from binary releases.  These jar files increase the size of
the binary releases a lot, and the size is mostly in a couple modules (eg benchmark and spatial).
> I think most people consume lucene through maven. For those that do use the binary release,
we can still make pulling the dependencies for these modules easy. We can add a generated
README file in each module that has dependencies, with instructions indicating they need to
download the dependencies, and then give the list of jar files they need to download, with
exact links to maven (which we can extract from ivy?).
