Subject Re: [Apache Bloodhound] Proposals/BEP-0004/ResourceQuery added
Date Wed, 28 Nov 2012 15:39:04 GMT
Hi all,

I moved search query requirements, query syntax and use cases into separate
page:
https://issues.apache.org/bloodhound/wiki/Proposals/BEP-0004/ResourceQuery

It is just first draft, so let's discuss how new search query should look
like and what features we want from it.

Regards, Andrej
