Comment (by awcode):

 New plugin directory search seems to be matching any words that shares a
 few letters regardless of relevance.

 eg. https://wordpress.org/plugins-wp/search/transport/
 Only 1 of first 12 is relevant, 5 are to do with translate which shares
 first 5 letters but completely different topic.

 eg. https://wordpress.org/plugins-wp/search/contextual/
 Some relevant but lots of completely irrelevant plugins with the word
 content or contact in, again matching the first 4 letters rather than true
 meaning of search word.

 Old directory was much more effective on these and all other searches I
 have tried so far.
