New Debian Web Site Search Engine

October 25th, 2000

After an extended period without a search facility, the Debian project has selected UdmSearch as their web site indexer. This means that users will be able to perform keywords searches on the site in their own language.

The search page, along with the rest of the site, uses language content negotiation and has been integrated to have the same look and feel as all other content on the Debian web site.

UdmSearch uses PostgreSQL as its URL and keyword database and has a PHP front end. It is licensed under the GNU GPL and is currently available in the unstable 'woody' distribution of Debian GNU/Linux.
