Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-664) [PATCH] small fixes to the new scoring.html doc
Date Fri, 01 Sep 2006 12:09:17 GMT
I like this idea and will give it a shot when I have some cycles.  I  
definitely think something at the top level is needed on scoring,  
even if it is just pointers to appropriate pieces inside.

I was even torn about the reproducing of the scoring formula in the  
scoring file.  Does anyone know of a way in Anakia to do an include  
or to scrape the formula automatically out of the Similarity javadoc?

Also, does anyone else have any thoughts on the content?  Where is it  
right, where is it wrong?
