Subject NO_NORMS and fakeNorms
Date Mon, 04 Dec 2006 21:07:10 GMT
Hi,

I was looking at NO_NORMS, but then spotted fakeNorms in SegmentReader.  From a quick look
it seems that even if NO_NORMS is used on a field, these fakeNorms get generated.
(see the patch in http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-448 ).  Why is that?  Why are
fake norms needed, and if we generate them for fields that should have no norms, aren't we
actually not saving the memory that NO_NORMS should save?

Thanks,
Otis
