Subject [jira] Created: (LUCENE-2286) enable DefaultSimilarity.setDiscountOverlaps by default

enable DefaultSimilarity.setDiscountOverlaps by default

                 Key: LUCENE-2286
             Project: Lucene - Java
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Query/Scoring
            Reporter: Robert Muir

I think we should enable setDiscountOverlaps in DefaultSimilarity by default.

If you are using synonyms or commongrams or a number of other 0-posInc-term-injecting methods,
these currently screw up your length normalization.
These terms have a position increment of zero, so they shouldnt count towards the length of
the document.

I've done relevance tests with persian showing the difference is significant, and i think
its a big trap to anyone using synonyms, etc: your relevance can actually get worse if you
don't flip this boolean flag.
