Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Change Query API to make queries immutable in 6.0
Date Thu, 02 Apr 2015 13:43:24 GMT
If we were designing things from scratch again, would boost really be
on Query, or would it be on BooleanClause?
Just throwing that out there... although it may make it easier to
implement immutable queries (and perhaps make more sense too), it may
also be too big of a change to be worth while.
