Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-664) [PATCH] small fixes to the new scoring.html doc
Date Fri, 06 Oct 2006 18:20:24 GMT

: I also think I want to drop the formula (and explanation) in
: scoring.html and just put a link to similarity in, so that we don't have
: to maintain two copies.  Ideally, there would be a way to do a server
: side include so that we could have one file that contains the formula
: and then have it included in both the javadocs and this page.  Does
: anyone know if this possible using our current setup?

Even if it is possible to uses SSIs on, it would make
the documentation hard to read when included in the published releases.

Extracting the formula into it's own micro HTML file is agood iea
though ... it could be commited into a "doc-files" directory into the
source tree so thatit's included along with the javadocs, (so it can be
linked to from the SImilarity javadocs) and like any other javadoc file it
could be linked to from the scoring.html file.

We could concievably even use an IFRAME of Javascript DOM manipulation
tricks to slurp it into the scoring.html

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.
