I agree. Gentoo's sites contain a lot of good information, but accessing/finding them is not easy. A search function is critical to exposing all the treasures on the site and improving access to information. It is the solution to the bottleneck in the access of information. I also posted on the bug to give it some "noise." It appears to be started a long time ago, I'm surprised how little attention it's received. Perhaps it was out of the picture back then due to difficulties in implementing it, but it's certainly feasible now. If Google is anything like Atomz, it should not be hard to implement at all. -Aaron -----Original Message----- From: Michael Curtis Napier [mailto:curtis119@×××××.com] Sent: Tuesday, January 18, 2005 11:07 AM To: www-redesign@××××××××××××.org Subject: Re: [www-redesign] Re: Status on Gentoo redesign
