I have added support for searching by package names only. This was one of the most requested features.

I would like to make the normal search “just work” as much as possible and rank relevant search results highly. However, there do seem to be some good use cases for only searching package names.

You can do so by prefixing a search term with either name: to restrict your search to package names or exact: to find only packages that exactly match the specified name.

Compare name:amarok vs exact:amarok vs amarok

I’ve added a tips page to document these hidden features.

This week I’ve also

  • Added google chrome repository for openSUSE 12.2
  • Indexed more OBS repositories

Please do keep your suggestions and bug reports coming via email.
