Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 188285
quick search seems useless - suggestion for what it should do
Last modified: 2013-06-23 22:59:36 EDT
Description of problem:
A recent bug I entered turned out to be a duplicate.
Before one enters a new bug one is *supposed* to search
to see that it is not a duplicate. I tried to do this by
entering terms in the "quick search" box. I now see this is
a very poor way to search. If I enter "nisplus nsswitch"
I get "zarro boogs" (which I assume means nothing matches).
And yet these terms do appear in many different bug reports.
Since the quick search box is so prominent (and convenient)
it ought to do something useful. I can't even figure out what
it is actually doing. In order to find the relevant bugs I
have to go to "search existing bug reports, put the search
terms into the comments box and select ALL of the statuses.
Wouldn't that make a good meaning for quick search?
