We need a Fedora search engine. Especially for docs. Options
1) Do we run our own?
I 110% recommend running our own.
2) Do we use google.
I'd like to not.
I love 2, its easy. But it is, non-OSS. So there are moral issues at
stake here. (though I've not used google to exclusively search through
our sites, it may suck at it, who knows :)
So, thoughts? Who has deployed their own search engines? I've used htdig
in the past.
I have. I'd recommend using datapark search. There is also the
xapian but it will need a robot to do the crawling (it has the Omega
indexer, but that is designed for local data.) I've got some python code
started, but it's not ready for production. htdig can be used to feed
data to xapian, so if we do go the route of htdig, I'd recommend
feeding the htdig data to the xapian framework otherwise we'd need to
run Omega on any system that has data and it wont index data that needs
to be rendered.
I also offer pointing searchfedora.org
Fedora hosted index.
