Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-7123) deduplicate/cleanup spatial distance
Date Mon, 21 Mar 2016 12:32:25 GMT

Robert Muir commented on LUCENE-7123:
-------------------------------------

I'm rejecting lucene.internal/lucene.experimental. I helped add the mechanism but I regret
it: I think its a cop-out. Instead the problem is too much shit being made public without
any thought to the API. I am going to clean this stuff up, it is just going to take time.

> Currently there is a bit of a mess here: SloppyMath.haversin is slightly different from
GeoDistanceUtils.haversin, the latter is actually slightly faster and uses a simple fixed
earth diameter (which makes calculations easier too).
> But one of these returns meters, the other kilometers. Furthermore lucene/spatial now
uses some sin/tan functions that were added to sloppymath with some accuracy guarantees (which
are untested, and not quite correct). Lucene/spatial queries also inconsistently mix the two
different functions together for various purposes and this just causes headaches. Its tests
did this recently too.
> We need to clean this up, otherwise users will be confused. E.G. they will see different
results from expressions than from queries and not understand.
