Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-664) [PATCH] small fixes to the new scoring.html doc

Doug Cutting commented on LUCENE-664:

Javadoc is easiest to keep in sync with changes to the code, since it is in the same files.
 The wiki is the hardest to keep in sync with the code, since it is not versioned with the
code.  We website is somewhere between: it is in subversion, but in separate files in a separate

The javadoc is thus the preferred location for documentation that is specific to the code.
 The website and wiki are better for stuff that's specific to the project: policys, procedures,
etc.  The wiki is great for user-generated stuff like benchmarks, porting tricks, use cases,

This stuff seems pretty closely tied to the code, so I'd put it in the javadoc.  It's nearly
all stuff that's in the search package, so much of this could go in search/package.html with
pointers to the javadoc for Query, Weight, Scorer, etc.

around the components of the formula.  But also a couple typos, another link out to Wikipedia,
a missing closing ), etc.  I've only made it through the "Understanding the Scoring Formula"
