 * {@link IndexDeletionPolicy} or {@link IndexReader}.</p>
 * <p> Changes to the content of an index are made visible
 * only after the writer who made that change commits by
 * writing a new segments file
 * (<code>segments_N). This point in time, when the
 * action of writing of a new segments file to the directory
 * is completed, is an index commit.</p>
 * <p>Each index commit point has a unique segments file
 * associated with it. The segments file associated with a
 * later index commit point would have a larger N.</p>
