Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-329) Fuzzy query scoring issues
Date Thu, 05 Oct 2006 19:32:12 GMT

: >> but assuming "clean data" with no mis-spellings, scoring "rare" terms
: higher seems like the ideal behavior
: Exact matched of a term should have a higher ranking then fuzzy matched
: terms.. at least that's the expected behaviour in my situation although
: i think it seems the most common behaviour.. We could also make this
: optionally, so that we don't affect the current scoring algorithm..

Unless I'm *really* confused by what the existing patch does, then what
you are proposing would be a third, completley different, scoring approach
-- as i understand the patch, less-fuzzy matches don't score better, it's
just that term with the biggest IDF sets the IDF for all other terms.
