One of the responses said "If there's progress I would say everything is
working as expected...", so while it is open it doesn't seem that it's

I don't use Linux so I can't test, but it seems that indexing is faster on
Linux? I'm curious to know how long it takes to index Creator's sources, if
you know.

Thanks for the clarification. That is helpful.
