Subject Return value of jobs
Date Sun, 08 May 2011 22:18:01 GMT

Currently the various Nutch jobs return 0 or -1 resp. indicating success or 
failure. It would be convenient to have certain jobs return the number of 
processed items instead of zero to make it a lot easier for shell scripts to 
fetch useful statistics.

What would be an argument against the fetcher or indexer to return a positive 
integer instead of zero on success?
