Subject omitNorms and very short text fields
Date Tue, 01 Apr 2014 18:30:59 GMT
Just double-checking my understanding of omitNorms.

For very short text fields like personal names or titles, length normalization can give odd
results. For example, we might want these two to score the same for the query "Cinderella".

* Cinderella
* Cinderella (Diamond Edition) (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy) (Widescreen)

And these two for the query "chuck":

* Chuck House
* Check E. Cheese

I think that omitNorm=true on those fields will give that behavior. Is that the right approach?
