-Indexer Core Notes
-MINDEXER-2 related Index core changes
-New locking semantics introduced to be able to cope with multithreaded processing. This mostly affects server-like apps integrating the indexer, not as much IDEs.
-IndexContext new methods:
-* commit/rollback -- for commiting changes, but also reopening readers/searchers if appropriate.
-* lock/unlock -- to perform shared locking, guaranteeing no reader/searcher reopen will occur.
-IteratorSearchResult/IteratorResultSet new methods:
-* both become Closeable. If you do NOT consume all of iterator (when automatic cleanup happens), you have to explicitly call result.close() to release locks!
-* warmUp of readers/searchers added, currently a naive implementation, later we can refine it
-* smaller fixes
-Notes: if an app integrating Indexer Core did NOT tamper with indexingContexts directly (by using one of it's ctx.getIndexWriter(),
-ctx.getIndexReader() and ctx.getIndexSearcher()), it should almost not notice anything. The only change needed is to explicitly close
-non-consumed IteratorSearchResults. Otherwise, you have to adapt and manually fiddle with locking of contexts, or use proper API calls. In future, these
-methods and direct IndexingContext use within integrating applications will be highly discouraged!

+ -i,--index Path to the index folder.
+ -k,--keep Number of incremental chunks to keep.
+ -l,--legacy Build legacy .zip index file
+ -n,--name Repository name.
+ -r,--repository Path to the Maven repository.
+ -s,--checksums Create checksums for all files (sha1, md5).
+ -t,--type Indexer type (default, min, full or coma separated
+ list of custom types).
+ -u,--unpack Unpack an index file
+ -v,--version Display version information
+$ cd repo-root/
+$ java -jar indexer-cli-5.0.0.jar -i ./.index -r . -d ./.index -t full
