When searching by multiple arguments (e.g. 'git client'), AUR site search seems to use AND operation, i.e. the search results will contain 'git' AND 'client' (378 results total at the moment).

How can the same be achieved by using AUR RPC?
If I search for 'git client' (, I get 2 results.
If I provide both arguments separately (, I get 1370 results - looks like OR operation is used.
This task depends upon

So, seems the problem is that the web search splits on spaces and then adds a match for each part, while the RPC only adds a clause for the full string.
