Package searching...

Hi all,

Sometime soon I plan to modify the dselect utility to allow searching of
package descriptions, not just names.

However, a thought just came to me (low and behold!).  Would it be possible to
add an extra tag to the package control file, something along the lines of:

Keywords: <blah> <blah> <blah>

It could then be possible to search on a set of key words, allowing easy
searching for any packages related to your current interest.

Ie, at a simple level, time utilities (eg. xtnp3) might have the tag:

Keywords: time gmt ntp

Get the idea?  Does this sound reasonable?  Next question, how hard is this
to implement?

Regards all,
