Subject Re: [Lucene.Net] [jira] [Commented] (LUCENENET-446) Make Lucene.Net CLS Compliant
Date Sun, 22 Jan 2012 02:11:50 GMT
I go back and forth on this one.  On one hand, people using VB.NET can't
use because of this blocking issue.  On the other, it's possible
people have production code (think even Stackoverflow) possibly using these
fields, and changing them without obsoleting them first could cause a huge
headache for them, though I realize they will have to do it at some point

In most cases, it's a discrepancy between fields and properties.  I would
hope most people chose to use the property instead of the field.  In other
cases, it's a public field (that should be been private or protected
internal) that has the same name as a method.  So I would like more
opinions here if possible, though I would rather just push it through.
 Unfortunately, people have gotten busy with holidays and/or work
(understandable), so activity seems to be dwindling.
