Subject Re: Relevancy Score Calculation
Date Thu, 07 Feb 2019 18:42:22 GMT
Why do you think that would help? This sounds like an XY
problem, you are asking how to do X because you think
it'll help with problem Y but haven't told us what Y is.

At any rate, it would require a code change, in many places.
It's unlikely to be worth the effort anyway, because the
term _frequencies_ would still include counts from deleted docs.

99% of the time in my experience, worrying excessively about
this kind of detail about score calculations is wasted effort,
but it's hard to recommend one way or the other without knowing
what "Y" is above.
