Subject Unexpected scoring results
Date Tue, 18 Jul 2017 16:09:26 GMT
On a legacy product that is still based upon Lucene-3.6.2, we (or our 
customers) occasionally encounter a situation like this:
For what ever reason, a customer causes more than one duplicate source 
document to be ingested into the same index.
A subsequent query whose criteria selects these duplicate documents can 
sometimes report score values that differ considerable for the supposedly 
duplicate content?

Searching through some of the older Lucene mail archives I did notice what 
I believe to be discussions concerning development test failures having to 
due with unexpected scoring results as past points in time.

Anyway, we do hope to soon upgrade to a newer version of Lucene (how new 
will depend upon our ability to provide re-indexing capability to existing 
customers' v3.6.2 existing indexes).
My question is: is it likely that this occasional scoring aberrations have 
been fixed and/or reduced in later versions (say 5.x or 6.x)?

Thank you for any info.
