no problem for me.

We should define, now, what we want searchable and accessible from the
interface. 

I'd rather not have a bunch of useless feature creep on the search
interface. The simpler the search interface and display is, the better.
An 'Advanced' Search interface is better handled by telling the user to
use the search tools in the distro and not the web interface.


my perfect search interface is:

search:________________________ [submit]

and _maybe_ just _maybe_ having a way of telling it what release to
search (3, 4, 5, etc, etc)


Andreas, Konstantin, what do y'all think? Does sound in line with what
you were considering?
