Solr Boost returns unexpected results

                 Key: SOLR-2131
             Project: Solr
          Issue Type: Wish
            Reporter: Jayant Patil


We are using Solr for our searches. We are facing issues while applying boost on particular
We have a field Category, which contains values like Electronics, Computers, Home Appliances,
Mobile Phones etc. 
We want to boost the category Electronics and Mobile Phones, we are using the following query
(category:Electronics^2 OR category:Mobile Phones^1 OR category:[* TO *]^0)

The results are unexpected as Category Mobile Phones gets more boost than Electronics even
if we are specifying the boost factor 2 for electronics and 1 for mobile phones respectively.
On debugging we found that DocFreq is manipulating the scores and hence affecting the overall
boost. The no. of docs for mobile phones is much lower than that for electronics and solr
is giving higher score to mobile phones for this reason.

Please suggest a solution.
