Bug#136997: www.debian.org: /Bugs/server-request is incorrect

Package: www.debian.org
Version: 20020305
Severity: normal

The page http://www.debian.org/Bugs/server-request has incorrect
information about the way that the request server operates.

Specifically, it claims that it's possible to get information
about packages by searching for a substring that is part of the
package name:

   index packages package

      Requests the index pages of bugs in the system for all packages
      containing the string package. The search term is a case
      insensitive substring. The bug index for each matching package
      will be sent in a separate message.

If you send a command of that form, for example

   index packages tetex

you get back a message stating that there are no bugs for the
package tetex, rather than separate messages with the index for
each tetex-* package.

(This bug may apply to debbugs rather than the website, however,
the information on the website is incorrect as well, and needs to
be updated to reflect the actual functionality of debbugs.)
