Subject [jira] Updated: (LUCENE-664) [PATCH] small fixes to the new scoring.html doc
Date Fri, 29 Sep 2006 04:55:52 GMT
     [ ]

Doron Cohen updated LUCENE-664:

    Attachment: boosts_plus_scoring_formula.patch

(1) added a section in Scoring.xml for "Search Results Boosts", on ways to boost in Lucene,
at search time and at indexing time. 

(2) updated the presentation of the scoring formula in, to:
- closely reflect the scoring code/process.
- distinguish between indexing time factors and search time factors, and
- point to differences between a scoring notion (, idf) to the way it is computed.

As result the scoring formula is presented differently in and in Scoring.html.
I can update this if there are no objections to the updated formula presentation.

of Lucene in general... thanks Grant & Steve & others!
> I have a few small initial proposed fixes, largely just adding some more description
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"
section so far.
