[hibernate-dev] [HSEARCH] Any plan to release 3.4.2 soon?

I think we should release one: we already backported some important
fixes, especially because Guillaume helped with it (among others),
which was very welcome.

So I can volunteer in making the release happen as I think such
contributions should not be discouraged by lack of tag/release
credentials, but I wonder if we should not fix some more issues on
3.4, especially one:
I've seen some more people complaining about issues in Lucene
specificially, and the 3.4 branch is using the rather old Lucene
version 3.1.


So I think we should solve that, and interestingly enough we can just
bump the version from Lucene 3.1 to 3.4 without any code change, or to
get 3.5 backporting one patch.
What puzzles me more if we should actually update Lucene in a minor
version - that was not our custom in the past, but previously Lucene
would take much longer for a new version and use minor versions (I
remember upgrading to 2.4.1, 2.4.2, 2.4.3 ..) while now the Lucene
team seems to have changed strategy and are doing 3.1.0, 3.2.0, ..
3.5.0 : so could we consider it acceptable to upgrade the Lucene
version in HS 3.4.2 ?

1- not upgrade at all
2- bump Lucene to 3.4.0
3- Upgrade to Lucene 3.5.0 : Needs someone to volunteer in backporting
the needed code changes.

What do you think?

The only other nasty bug on 3.4.0 is HSEARCH-975: if someone takes
responsibility on it we can include it, or it will wait for next. TBH
I don't think we can solve it without moving JGroups to a separate
module(s), and might not be worth the effort since it's not an issue
in 4.x.
