Comment (by mindmantra):

 @Otto42 You are right. But not every plugin needs to get updated to be
 compatible. Still, I do concur with you on keeping it in check.

 My point above, is more in terms of the general issue and not specific to
 single plugin. I am suggesting that we take in consideration of the recent
 installs and reviews at least in such edge cases.

 My reason being that not every plugin, such as one mentioned above, needs
 to be updated for every release. And with recent install base and/or
 reviews avg would indicate that it is working for people. Not saying that
 this is definitive answer but if good thought is put in it then overall
 search experience would be better for all.

 ''Another issue, which probably should be a separate ticket, is that the
 results which are shown are not at all relavant to keywords. Even the
 plugins in the results have no logical relavance to each other.See
 attachement above.''
