Description Johnray Fuller 2005-04-07 16:28:05 UTC
This is feedback from a customer about the Search engine:

"Searching on the red hat site hasn't given me any useful information for an
issue I'm looking into. The search needs two things:

1) The documentation search needs to be customized so that instead of searching
just "documentation" I can search the documentation for the specific
distribution I am interested in.

2) The search must provide a way to continue the original search.  If I do a
search using the "Search Docs" dialog at "" then your
search engine restricts searches to documents.  However if I continue to search
from there I am given the general site-wide search.  This is frustrating because
your site invariably has far more keywords mentioned in your mailing list
archives than in your documents."

Red Hat is aware of this issue and is working to improve the and
documentation site search.  Please continue to be patient while we are improve
this characteristic of our web site.  We are targetting a new search to be
available in the December 2005 time frame.

The new search engine went live today.  Different components on the web site are
phased out, but the roll-out of the initial search is now live.
