[Koha] How or maybe where are relevance rankings established?

Hello All,

I am trying to get a grip on how a search is ordered when "relevance" is specified.  Is there a place in the staff client where these results are controlled - i.e. which fields are given weight?

Or perhaps the question is where would I find the algorithm that is being used - assuming it is hard coded somewhere?

The "about" info pasted below my name in the event an update will make a difference here.

Thanks for the help,
