 > Thanks all. Some very helpful examples. I'm not going to respond to
 everyone because I think a lot of these are are related to the same
 problem of over matching partial words or very common terms getting
 somewhat swamped out by very popular plugins that also use that same term
 ("import" and "export" are very good examples of this).
 > I think the new search is a lot better than the old, but I am also still
 disappointed in the current results and think we can do much better. Going
 to spend time working on it rather than responding to individual cases for
 the moment.
 > > I've been following this thread since the early days, and I must say I
 don't envy those working on this ticket! It seems there are a lot of
 conflicting opinions, some backed up with evidence from the old (also
 imperfect) search. I appreciate the work everyone is putting into it.
 > Thanks for the kind words @megamenu. Honestly, this is pretty fun to
 work on. It's a hard problem and having engaged users with opinions is a
 great way to learn.

 Keep up the great work. We know you have worked hard on this. We are all
 very optimistic about the results.
