Subject [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-1896) Modify confusing javadoc for queryNorm
Date Thu, 10 Sep 2009 02:13:57 GMT


Mark Miller commented on LUCENE-1896:

The real problem with this, is that while it wants to pluggable, because the sumOfSquared
scores is calculated in the Weight, its really not so pluggable.

The alg is not properly contained - this queryNorm is one divided by the square root of the
sumOfSquared weights - but thats the whole norm. If you wanted to
replace it with one, you shouldnt still be doing sumOfSquaredWeights.

Perhaps its a compromise on a difficult piece (have not considered) - but technically its
kind of off..
