      Subject: A small correction in the Quick Start page of Terrier website

      Hi,
      I guess there is a small correction needed in the QuickStart page for
      installing and running terrier.

      Its under the Subheading "Retrieval" point no.2 (which should be 6 actually)

      2. Now we will perform retrieval again but this time we enable query
      expansion (QE) by using the "-r" parameter. See Information Retrieval Wiki
      page on Query Expansion <http://ir.dcs.gla.ac.uk/wiki/QueryExpansion> for
      more information about QE. Note that your index must have a direct index
      structure to support QE. A direct index is built by not built by default by
      single-pass indexing (see Configuring
      Indexing<http://ir.dcs.gla.ac.uk/terrier/doc/configure_indexing.html&gt;for
      more information). Afterwards we can run the evaluation again by using
      trec_terrier.sh with the "-e" parameter.

      The first line says "-r" parameter . But it should be "-q", if I am right.

      It would be nice if you can number the points under the "Retrieval" section
      correctly. As you could see its not ordered right now.

      Cheers,
      Sethu

          I've made the change on the live version. I'll shortly commit it to SVN as well, unless any objections.
