Subject Re: Suggester or spellcheck return stored fields
Date Wed, 27 Apr 2011 11:46:08 GMT
Hmmm, I don't quite get how this would work. There is really no association
between terms from one field and terms from another. As I read your message,
you have a PM from user1 with a term in some field of interest, call it
"suggestion". A PM from user2 also has the term "suggestion". Now you want
the suggester to return suggestion:user1 suggestion:user2? If this is accurate
then  I believe you'd have to index them that way because there's no way I know
of of efficiently unwinding a term from the inverted index to associate it with
a document, then another field in that document.

If I've misunderstood your need, could you elaborate?
