[RFE] Search for all packages containing string, not just packages starting with string
Last modified: 2016-09-13 15:54:52 EDT
The search box in SE, searches for packages starting with the name typed. It would be more convenient to search for packages containing such a word.
You can achieve this by using the search syntax:
would get you all packages containing the word office.
We have other bugs related to improving how the search syntax works, may roll this one up into an already existing bug
The search query language currently supported by SE is based upon the Lucene Query Syntax. The following is a brief reference to it:
Using this syntax, a user can provide wild cards within the query, as shown in the document and comment 1.
There are a few bugs related to search in SE; however, the one that is most related to this one is bug 805321, which requests the addition of help text or instructions to assist the user with the syntax.
There has also been some side discussions of potentially moving away from using the Lucent Query Syntax and creating our own syntax for the product; however, that has not been formally planned.
getting rid of 6.0.0 version since that doesn't exist
Per 6.3 planning, moving out non acked bugs to the backlog
This should be accomplished via:
name ~ foo
in Satellite 6.2
