Subject Re: q.alt matching no documents
Date Mon, 28 Sep 2009 14:51:54 GMT
patch created for lucene:

https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LUCENE-1931

I am not sure what the right thing to do here is to hook it into
QueryParser.java.

Maybe the Solr people can comment on how to hook it into Solr.
