Detail questions about significant_terms aggregation


first: The significant_terms aggregation is really cool.
second: I wonder if someone could explain some details to me:

  • What is bg_count? I know it's "background count" but what does this mean?
  • At first I thought the score values are between 0 and 1 but then I found
    scores which are much bigger. Is there a simple explanation for the score
