Subject BoostingTermQuery scoring
Date Tue, 04 Nov 2008 14:42:32 GMT
I'm using BoostingTermQuery to boost the score of documents with terms
containing payloads (boost value > 1). I'd like to change the scoring
behavior such that if a query contains multiple BoostingTermQuery terms
(either required or optional), documents containing more matching terms with
payloads always score higher than documents with fewer terms with payloads.
Currently, if one of the terms has a high IDF weight and contains a boosting
payload but no payloads on other matching terms, it may score higher than
docs with other matching terms with payloads and lower IDF.

I think what I need is a way to increase the weight of a matching term in
BoostingSpanScorer.score() if 'payloadsSeen > 0', but I don't see how to do
this. Any suggestions?
