Subject Re: Implementing customized Scorer with solr API 1.4
Date Thu, 20 Aug 2009 19:10:41 GMT
We should probably move to using Lucene's Filters/DocIdSets
instead of DocSets and merge the two. Then we will not need to
maintain two separate but similar and confusing functionality
classes. This will make seamlessly integrating searching with
Solr's Filters/DocSets into Lucene's new per segment reader
searching easier, especially for new filter writers such as
yourself. Right now we have what appears to be duplicated code.

We probably need several different issues to accomplish what
this requires. One start is SOLR-1308, though I suspect given
the restructuring required, we'll need to break things up into
several separate issues. I'm not really sure what SOLR-1179 was
