Subject constant score queries / function scores and idf
Date Mon, 26 Sep 2005 21:03:16 GMT
For something like ConstantScoreRangeQuery, or a query that scores based on
field contents, it doesn't make sense to have an idf() (and hence I leave it

However, I'm worried about how these constant scores will vary with respect
to other clauses when the index changes size. Does it make sense to use a
constant like idf(1) when scoring these queries in an attempt to keep the
weights in proportion?
