Subject [jira] [Commented] (LUCENE-4514) Make Scorer.freq() well defined: number of matches in doc
Date Tue, 30 Oct 2012 13:10:12 GMT


Michael McCandless commented on LUCENE-4514:

Patch looks good!

bq. Really to make the SloppyPhraseScorer cleaner I think we should (unrelated) collapse it
into the abstract PhraseScorer, of which its the only subclass now that ExactPhraseScorer
extends Scorer directly.
