Malleo pugnae aviditate. 🌊👋🙋\o 💥🔨 ZFG 🙌 I see on F-Droid there are now PeerTube and Dtube clients; although I'm not crazy about the Dtube ties to Discord™ & Steemit™. But Decentralized is the coming thing!

Someone also did a fork or alt' of the F-Droid client, at least for browsing the repo'(s); and the icons/Avatars are not greyed out, G-droid!!!!

11:59:18@ouftidave:matrix.orgouftidaveIs there a bug in the search indexing of the F-Droid app?
12:01:23@ouftidave:matrix.orgouftidaveWhen I'm looking for Naked Browser, search for 'naked' comes back with 'no result'. Looking for 'browser', it is not in the results (but WTH I see Editor?). When I look for 'ring', I can't find it in the results.
12:14:03@Grillby:matrix.org[♥](Bloom Kitty)What made you think that this browser is in the F-Droid repo?

@Grillby:matrix.org : Once again you are missing the point. Seems intentional. :-|

GNU Ring IS in the main F-Droid project repo'!
https://f-droid.org/en/packages/cx.ring/

Other projects may be in an alternate repo' such as Izzy. Look in this room's topic for links to a list or discussion.

And either the asker or answerer should provide some relevant info'. It's possible this Naked Browser was considered for onr of the repo's, IDK.
http://nakedbrowser.com/android/

A metasearch returned this:

I couldn't find the free Naked Browser in the playstore/f-droid and looking through the review comments on the paid version, the author doesn't seem to want the free version around any more.

It's not, I'm sorry.

Well, they are asking about srarching within F-Droid.

ouftidave: I often try f-droid.org •, but AFAIK that has not covered projects on other repo's. Maybe also look at the G-Droid app', on F-Droid.

15:08:03@ouftidave:matrix.orgouftidaveOK, I didn't know about Naked Browser being removed but still. Searching for 'ring' with the F-Droid app, it doesn't appear in the list. I find it no very consistent and yeah, I sometimes go and do the search from the web page.
15:15:08@ouftidave:matrix.orgouftidaveI gave a try to G-Droid, but it searches only on apk names. Next feature to add is to search the repo including apk descriptions, better, propose to do an optionnal search on both.

Using only "Ring", in the G-Droid app', it is the first result. As far as in the F-Droid app', I used "GNU Ring" and got it in a handful of results. As I wrote, good keywords help, and AFAIK it's properly called "GNU Ring", from my work maintaining a community ran room:

#GNU-Ring:matrix.org

The thing is I've never heard about GNU Ring. I was pointed to "Ring on F-Droid". Unfortunately, the app is labelled 'Ring', not 'GNU Ring'. Thus I thought that searching on (part of) the name, it would be listed in the results. But it's not.

While we are abusing the Quote & Reply functions, let's use them to reiterate for rereading noteworthy points:

07:13:57@keverets-riot:matrix.orgkeveretsouftidave: that does look like a bug in the f-droid search. Ring is listed when searched, but the sorting is such that it's way down the list. Did you file a bug against the f-droid client?
07:26:54@Grillby:matrix.org[♥](Bloom Kitty) It's not a bug, the results are sorted by the date of each app's last update, so the most recent app that has your keywords in the title or description is at the top.
