Bug#881681: www.debian.org: packages.debian.org:displays "Your keyword was too generic" message on exact matches

Package: www.debian.org
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

When I search an exact package name, such as "firefox", with the "display exact results only" option set, it is the most precise possible search for that package.  And yet, the website spits up a nonsense warning message: "Your keyword was too generic, for optimizing reasons some results might have been suppressed.
Please consider using a longer keyword or more keywords."  Please consider only displaying this message when it's actually relevant (aka, a large number of results are actually going to be displayed)
