#4419 find packages on frontpage does not search all packages
Opened a year ago by pemensik. Modified 3 months ago

When I type src.fedoraproject.org, I have find Pakcages box on prominent place. I expected it would search any package I type there.

If I type fedora-repos and push enter, nothing really happens. If that is supposed to search only my packages, it should change description. It should be able to say nothing was found in My packages in that case. It seems it ignores me.

I would suggest it would prefer my packages, but searches all Fedora packages if not found in my packages. At least please change description of search box.

Tested on Fedora 29, firefox-66.0.2-1.fc29.x86_64.

Anyone know if there's a workaround? It seems to only search my own packages, so I don't know how to find anything else.

When you're logged in, the default view's search box is for your own stuff. If you want to search everything, you need to go to the "browse" page and use its search box: https://src.fedoraproject.org/browse/projects/

This is not particularly intuitive, but the default view is designed to let you search through stuff you already have, especially if you have lots of projects listed (like a lot of SIG owners do).
