Jumping in since I saw this at the top of the web list archive. This
service is very convenient and I think it would be fairly painful for
the community to see it disappear. Since we do not have the capacity to
develop + maintain new software, I wonder if the following 'low-tech'
approach could work:
* Generate a static page for each package.
* Crawl/Index it with existing search solution such as Yacy 
We could even extend this search thing to more Fedora websites if it
performs well. I think it might be worth a proof-of-concept, which I can
try to build if you're willing to allocate me some server/VM space for
I like this idea! I used the packages web app heavily when I was
learning to package for Fedora. If the search result redirects to a
static page and it is possible to limit what data Yacy crawls, then it
would be possible to recreate most of the old packages functionality
a need for any web development.
