Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-6578) Geo3d: arcDistanceToShape() method may be useful
Date Thu, 25 Jun 2015 17:14:04 GMT


Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-6578:

bq. I'm not in a hurry to commit anything that has this amount of code redundancy – sorry.
Now is the time to address it; not in an inevitable future issue. Apparently Mike feels differently.

Please don't over-read into my comments. I haven't looked at this patch at all yet.

I was simply responding directly to Karl's question "should @Override of an interface method
have its own javadocs": generally they should not, unless the impl has something different
to document, but that this should not block committing an otherwise good change.

> I've got an application that seems like it may need the ability to compute a new kind
of arc distance, from a GeoPoint to the nearest edge/point of a GeoShape.  Adding this method
to the interface, and corresponding implementations, would increase the utility of the package
for ranking purposes.
