Use GIT?[edit]

Archived from the Feedback page:

So have you thought about using a DVCS like GIT?

—The preceding comment was added by thkoch (commentscontribs) .

I've used Git for other projects, and while I liked its speed and the ability to experiment in local branches without cluttering up the main repository, I would very much disagree with the "Easy to use" bullet in the web site you linked to - Git is a much more complex tool for new users and the end-user tools (TortoiseGit, etc) seemed (to me) to be far less polished than those available for Subversion. As a result I'm personally happy continuing to use Subversion for the project, but if there was a strong preference from other project contributors to switch to Git then I wouldn't be opposed. -- Ryan • (comments) • 06-Jul-2011 08:53 PDT

Java 6[edit]

Copied from the main article

Lucene requires Java 6 since June 2011, Spring however is still on Java 1.5. -- thkoch 10-May-2012 06:44 PDT

Lucene is still Java 5 compatible - from the Lucene 3.6 release notes [1]: "In addition to Java 5 and Java 6, this release has now full Java 7 support (minimum JDK 7u1 required)". -- Ryan • (comments) • 10-May-2012 07:39 PDT
