Great ideas, thanks! Defenitely need a human browsable repository and an API
to automate and extent searches. Nice examples, also. BTW, liitin namespace
can be abbreviated as plain ":" i.e. liitin:object-name equals to

I've also thought about Mediawiki engine that might be able to handle
atleast some of the mentioned requirements.

br, jukka

    Hi Rodolfo,

    I'm glad you liked it :)

  I've been following your announcements. Your ideal is interesting.

    Unfortunately there's not yet a decent way to find out what's available.
I've noticed the same need while 'dog-fooding' on the system, and have
planned to approach it in two ways:

    - Provide an internal/external channel for people to make announcements
(= web and/or posting list)
    - Add a search functionality atleast with free-text search on object
name and content, and 'my history' options.

  Maybe some kind of indexed and searchable repository would be nice. Then
this repository could provide an API to search for things.
  For example one can do an "apt-cache search ..." to search APT
repositories from the console, as well as use a GUI like Synaptic to perform
a similar task.
