Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-3381) Sandbox remaining contrib queries
Date Thu, 18 Aug 2011 09:43:27 GMT


Mark Harwood commented on LUCENE-3381:

bq. Sorry, I think these problems should be fixed first!

I acknowledge those are issues to be addressed for more general use and (luckily) do not affect
my existing usage of this class. I expect the query-caching issue can be fixed relatively
simply. The scoring system issue gets interesting because this fuzzy functionality relies
on tweaking IDF in particular. To work across different scoring systems generically I expect
IDF-tweakage would need to be made a pluggable aspect of all these scoring strategies e.g.
through a common interface. Messy.

The point of my previous comment was to register that this was one of the queries languishing
outside of core that was genuinely in active use. I imagined this would be  useful information
if folks are in the process of cleaning out some of the "dead wood" (including relegation
to a "useless-but-stored-for-historical-purposes" pile).

> In LUCENE-3271, I moved the 'good' queries from the queries contrib to new destinations
(primarily the queries module).  The remnants now need to find their home.  As suggested in
LUCENE-3271, these classes are not bad per se, just odd.  So lets create a sandbox contrib
that they and other 'odd' contrib classes can go to.  We can then decide their fate at another
