Description Orion Poplawski 2020-08-19 18:13:10 UTC
Description of problem:

It would be very helpful to be able to search for COPRs based on what packages they provide.  For example I would really like to know any COPRs that provide libgnomeui-devel for CentOS 8 x86_64.

Comment 1 Miroslav Suchý 2020-08-21 14:05:07 UTC
You can search using SRPM:
  https://copr.fedorainfracloud.org/coprs/fulltext/?fulltext=libgnomeui

Comment 2 Orion Poplawski 2020-08-21 15:09:50 UTC
Thanks.  That's not immediately obvious, and I'm guessing it searches for more than just srpm names.  But it does solve this immediate question.

Comment 3 Pavel Raiskup 2020-12-14 15:00:03 UTC
We should at least document this in FAQ (what are the full text search parameters,
what we search for/in, etc).

There's https://pagure.io/copr/copr/issue/1411 which could give us some space for
a better full text search implementation.  But that would be a low priority rfe.

Jakub is working on:
https://pagure.io/copr/copr/pull-request/1920

Jakube, while on it, can you please take care of documentation if needed?
E.g. if some of the arguments aren't obvious from the UI directly...

Comment 5 Robin Lee 2021-11-16 07:48:51 UTC
And please add or document how to search by exact match. It is hard to find for a package with a short name, for example, "mock".

However, I don't think this is possible.

There's this RFE, though: https://pagure.io/copr/copr/issue/1947
