Hi mods.

I've just looked up for devuan in this forum and I got results. 100% of the results I checked (I did check about a dozen of them) don't include devuan though. That makes me curious about how the search engine works; is it expected behaviour or a bug?

Have a great day, guys.

That the forums built-in search is severely broken was the hot topic a couple years ago, I doubt anyone fixed it since. After all migrating to a not long discontinued forum software would solve this mostly on it's own.

Just add site:gentoo.org to your google query

Thanks for the explanation. I indeed could have known about Google. Fortunate are we to not index media content... :wink:
