Subject [jira] [Created] (LUCENE-7063) NumericUtils vs LegacyNumericUtils chaos with 6.0

             Summary: NumericUtils vs LegacyNumericUtils chaos with 6.0
                 Key: LUCENE-7063
             Project: Lucene - Core
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Robert Muir

Old prefix-coded terms helper functions are still available in LegacyNumericUtils, but its
confusing when upgrading because NumericUtils and LegacyNumericUtils have overlaps in the

One issue is they share some exact methods that are completely unrelated to this encoding
(e.g. floatToSortableInt). The method is just duplication and worst, most lucene code is still
calling it from LegacyNumericUtils, even stuff like faceting code using it with docvalues.

Another issue is the new NumericUtils methods (which use full byte range) have vague names,
no javadocs, expose helper methods as public unnecessarily, and cause general confusion.

I don't think NumericUtils and LegacyNumericUtils should overlap. LegacyNumericUtils should
only contain legacy stuff!
