Subject Re: Question about ordering rule of SpanNearQuery

Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be any Javadoc that discusses what 
factors are used to score spans. For example, how to relate the number of 
times a span matches in a document vs. the exactness of each span match.

Subject: Question about ordering rule of SpanNearQuery

Hi all,
    Recently, we are developing a platform with lucene. The ordering rule we 
specified is the document with the shortest distance between query terms 
ranks the first. But there may be a little different with SpanNearQuery. It 
returns all the documents with qualified distance. So I am confused with the 
ordering rule about SpanNearQuery. For example, I indicate the slot in 
SpanNearQuery is 10. And the results are all the qualified documents. Is it 
true that any document with shorter distance between query rand before the 
one with longer distance without considering the tf-idf algorithm? Or among 
all the qualified documents, it till uses tf-idf algorithm to rank the docs. 
Or there is some complex algorithm blending the distance and tf-idf 

Thanks in advance.
