Anything that's commonly used should be in Solr's equivalent of advanced search
Agreed ... but there is a risk that some "common" options aren't ubiqutious, so if we add them to the form people could get confused if a param doesn't work because the request handler they are using doesn't support it
in the case of fq, i think the pros outway the cons ... that's why i committed your patch.
I'm curious why we're not interested in making a more advanced UI?
i don't remember anyone saying that ... i just don't think hardcoding a bunch of params into form.jsp is the way to go. i'd love to see a good UI that could inspect the solr conifuration and display the appropriate options in a GUI – ala the wiki page i mentioned (but aparently didn't link to) ...
