    Description

      We are using a log of probability for scoring, which gives us negative scores.

      DisjunctionMaxScorer initializes scoreMax in the score(...) function to zero preventing us from using negative scores. Is there a reason it couldn't be initialized to something like this:

      float scoreMax = Float.MAX_VALUE * -1;
