Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-3145) Velocity /browse GUI should stick to AND as defaultOperator
Date Tue, 13 Mar 2012 12:23:37 GMT


Robert Muir commented on SOLR-3145:

I think defaulting to AND is very dangerous: especially with more minimal stopword lists
like Lucene's. Then shorter documents that happen to be missing some useless pronoun
don't show up in results at all.

Any problems that this would "Fix" are really problems with Lucene's Similarity: the term
frequency normalization function grows too fast, etc.

Why not fix the real problem instead: either default to a Similarity with a stronger coord()

implementation, or a stronger ranking algorithm all together.

> After SOLR-1889 was committed, the DisMax "mm" parameter defaults to whatever set in
q.op. Since defaultOperator in schema.xml is OR, this means that DisMax now defaults to OR
(mm=0) instead of the old default (mm=100%). It should stick to AND as before.
