|11:59:18||ouftidave||Is there a bug in the search indexing of the F-Droid app?|
|12:01:23||ouftidave||When 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||[♥](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'!
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.
A metasearch returned this:
|13:57:47||The point was about searching. The right keywords often help.|

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||OK, 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||I 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:
|15:19:14||Yeah, I'll try to get a GitLab 'bot working in here for issue tracking.|
In reply to @MilkManzJourDaddy:matrix.orgThe 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.

|07:13:57||keverets||ouftidave: 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||[♥](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.|
