Hi all,

I'm confused by this page of the notmuch website
<https://notmuchmail.org/performance/>, specifically the section
"Compact your database", which talks about compacting the notmuch
database using "xapian-compact". I don't understand how this relates to
the command "notmuch compact"
<https://notmuchmail.org/doc/latest/man1/notmuch-compact.html>.

Is it that <https://notmuchmail.org/performance/> wasn't updated to
reflect the existence of "notmuch compact", or is there some subtle
reason to want to keep the "xapian-compact"-based process?

Thanks,
