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 [1]

I think it is an interesting idea, I don't know about Yacy but I think doing a simple proof-of-concept with maybe a few packages could be interesting.

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
testing :-)

If you are happy with having something running in containers, you can ask to get access to communishift [0] but mind that this will be offline for a little while in the coming months because of the data centre move. Otherwise I think we could get you instance on AWS probably. Either way if you open an infra ticket [1] with what you need or want we can then look at possible solutions :-).
