Subject Re: Document boosting and native ordering of results
Date Mon, 26 Aug 2013 16:38:30 GMT
Not sure if there are any thoughts on this.

It definitely makes sense to assign a rank to each document in the 
index, so that all else being equal, documents are returned in order of 
rank.  This is exactly what the page rank is in Google's index, and 
Google would be lost without it.  This used to be possible in old 
versions of Lucene, but no longer.  Should this be posted as a feature 
request to the developers?
