Subject Absolute term position in scoring
Date Sun, 25 Jan 2015 02:34:29 GMT

Is it possible to incorporate in Lucene's scoring function the position of
a matching term (say as measured from the top of the document). The
scenario is, if the set of documents tend to lk about the most important
stuff at the beginning of the document, then we would like to give
preference to documents that mention a term close to the top.
