The wiki conversion was far from perfect or complete. I've been
looking at my SIG pages this weekend and they needed many manual

I don't think most Fedora contributors have realised what the
remaining volume of wiki cleanup is.

I noticed that too. Many links have changed syntax, for example. But the
way search is performed is not likned with edition of the wiki, but some
kind of configuration.
The 'broken' search is not actually broken...

All new pages _should_ be created with spaces between major words (i.e. what would have been 'CVSAdminProcedure' should now be 'CVS Admin Procedure'), now while we can't do all that right now (cleaning up the formatting is more important really) it's something to keep in mind today onwards.

Also, with Mediawiki user pages SHOULD be located as User:fasname, not RealName like moin did (redirecting the other direction just makes this harder/more annoying), in addition any subpages RealName/* should be moved to User:fasname/* too.

When this is done, it will have the end effect of search working properly again.
