We need a Search Engine! Was: We need a FAQ.



Hi all,

Back in April, 2000, I decided to adopt Debian for my firewall.

Over SuSE. Over FreeBSD. Over OpenBSD. And, my God yes, over Red Hat!

This list has proven to be The_Only_Source_Of_Good_Debian_Input. But, it
has an enormously high volume, which it needn't have.

Why?

When every other site worth a damn has a basic, simple,
clear-up-the-obvious, Search Engine, http://www.debian.org/search
complains it has not found a Search Engine worthy of itself.

Not found a Search Engine worthy of itself!?!!

With the Best-Of-The-Best developing for Debian?

Give me a break! Even I could write one from what I've learned from this
list!

Put an even so-so Search Engine at http://www.debian.org/search and you
will see the traffic and inanity (including my own) on this list
plummet!

Well, if I were really hot about this issue I would go on and on, but...

...thank you for listening and for your patience with,

montefin
