Subject Re: DO NOT REPLY [Bug 28960] New: - Add "an" to the English stop words
Date Thu, 13 May 2004 21:48:46 GMT
Yeah, I think that would cause problems for some people.
I'm for closing that bug and maybe even just removing all the stop
words from the Lucene core, so people don't rely on them, as they are
really more for a demo and should not be done.
