      Description

      Since time memorial, users of Terrier have been able to attempt various weighting models and topics sets etc by adding entries in trec.models qemodels trec.topics.list and trec.qrels

      However, for each of these, there are now properties, and these can be set on the command line. No one in Glasgow now really uses these files. The proposed action is to remove this functionality, in favour of users using properties. If they want to run mutliple experiments, they can use scripting languages (e.g. Bash).

      Discuss.

            That seems fine. However, under the same logic, I would question the utility of the /etc subfolder, as it will subsequently contain only the propertes file? (which could be moved up a dir)

            That would be a major change that I wouldn't attempt for 3.1. Perhaps someone can come to the defense of the etc/ folder?

            Attached updated patch from Nut. This removed qemodels, trec.qrels trec.topics.list files from the etc/ folder, and removes iterating functionality from TRECQuerying.
