> BooleanQuery explain with boost==0
> ----------------------------------
>          Key: LUCENE-451
>          URL:
>      Project: Lucene - Java
>         Type: Bug

>     Priority: Minor

> BooleanWeight.explain() uses the returned score of subweights to determine if a clause
> If any required clause has boost==0, the returned score will be zero and the explain
for the entire BooleanWeight will be simply  Explanation(0.0f, "match required").
> I'm not sure what the correct fix is here.  I don't think it can be done based on score
alone, since that isn't how scorers work.   Perhaps we need a new method "boolean Explain.matched()"
that returns true on a match, regardless of what the score may be? 
> Related to the problem above, even if no boosts are zero, it it sometimes nice to know
*why* a particular query failed to match.  It would mean a longer explanation, but maybe we
should include non matching explains too?
