 I don't know if this change is the reason (I didn't test the search prior
 to this), however I can't find a single plugin that has under 100.000
 active installs in the search.

 I might be exaggerating, however most search results are returning plugins
 with a lot of active installs that are not particularly relevant to the
 search query.

 I can't find boost in the code for title, slug, etc.(perhaps I'm not
 looking where I should?). Only for active installs, plugin_modified,
 tested up to version, rating and support_threads_resolved. So wouldn't
 that list results that might not be relevant just because they have a lot
 of active installs?
