Hi folks,

I did follow the discussion during the meeting, and was hesitating to ask: why exactly do we want own search implemented?
From my experience, Google or DuckDuck do index Fedora resources just fine, and whenever I want to find something - I just use those.
Own search engine adds to the cost of support and maintenance, with questionable benefits.
Unless we have some public resources that have tricky robots.txt and are not indexed by other search engines - this looks like a waste of resources to me.
I might miss something though, so any insight is welcome.

PS: there're 2 messages in the list moderation queue from me that could be deleted - was fighting with Zimbra identities, sorry for spam.


Mostly agree with Vasyl Kaigorodov. I think it would be great to use 
Custom Search Engine from Google. It lets you integrate Google 
search engine into your site and tweak it a bit, more info at:
The integration is super easy, just some lines of javascript.
