Rich, I hear you.   All I'm saying is we need more descriptions to make it useful

I don't understand anything any more. But I'm 99% sure that my confusion comes from at least 2 bugs occurring at once. First I'll try to change back my mirror to ibiblio.
Sure our busybox wget doesn't have some regression? ftp.vim.org used to be pretty stable...

The problem with tags for me is this,

If I knew what to look for I wouldn't need the tags..

If I have no clue what it is I am looking for, then how will I know what question to ask..?


Tags assume you have an idea what category of utility you are looking for and think on the same terms as the person who wrote the info file..   In reality those two are on opposite sides of the spectrum.  The name I choose to search under has rarely been the description chosen by the author.  For me tags need to be idiot proof.

I wish I knew how to improve upon the idea, but I'm scratching my head on this one..

Other than, please make it idiot proof  ;)


actually it seems to me there is no big problems with tags
problem mainly is not with tags but when they are absent

you forgot about developer whose info maintainer uses
ie developer and user are located on opposite poles
and maintainer located between them as weakest link

if you want improve this then you must be a neurosurgeon
or alternatively improved discipline by introducing strict rules
describing what minimum quantity and quality of info must be added

I don't get it, whereas I found all extensions I needed quite easily on 3.x I now have to choose between 3 different searches which all seem to work equally bad.
IIRC on 3.x the default was to search Descriptions and file names, and provides.sh additionally included file listings? Is there some description somewhere how this was or is done?
it seems that now description is not included generally in search criteria even if look for provides

i tried to find any extension using specific words
that accurately available in description as i seen
but this did not work

i know that earlier tags were part of description
and even had no problem when seemingly no tags
but remember that tags was separated
under community influence

p.s.
which once again confirms
