Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-3240) add spellcheck 'approximate collation count' mode
Date Tue, 13 Mar 2012 15:54:39 GMT


James Dyer commented on SOLR-3240:

Are you saying that if a user only cares that a collation will yield some hits, but doesn't
care how many, then we can short-circuit these queries to quit once one document is collected?
 (alternatively, quit after n docs are collected is the user doesn't care if it is "greater
than n" ?)
