Subject RE: [Lucene.Net] Is a Lucene.Net Line-by-Line Jave port needed?

Others have done a much better , more through job of explaining the issues in previous discussions.
 It would be best to re-read those.

One way to understand it, is if Lucene.NET cannot be compared to the reference source code
(Lucene core "java Lucene") than it becomes nearly impossible to validate that Lucene.NET
is functioning correctly, that bug fixes made in Lucene core have been implemented in Lucene.NET,
etc.  The same goes for unit tests, if they cannot be compared with the ones from Lucene core
line-by-line than there is no way to know that they perform the intended tests and run correctly.

 It ceases to be Lucene.
