Has anybody lost their book's index when switching to lualatex?

in my large (handbook) project with 20 child documents and a Makefile of
502 lines (with has a bit of fancy stuff, such as a number of included
PDFs, images, and text files (config files from other servers) all
triggering the LyX run, stamp generation (!) and backup after looking
up which hostname this is running on :-)-O), I still generate the PDF
via (command line) LyX

	/Applications/LyX.app/Contents/MacOS/lyx -f -e pdf5 handbook.lyx

which works extremely well and has survived a number of LyX updates.

So my advice and experience is to let LyX take care of this.  But, if I
was exporting to LuaLaTeX I would use latexmk to compile, because that
will also do all the indexing and bibliographing.

greetings, el
