"client git" search results ( include one package that does not have "client" within its name or description:
But it does have "client" among its keywords, so it seems that the search is performed by keywords as well which I think is a bug.
This task depends upon

Sounds more like "by design" to me. What is the point of keywords if the search doesn't cover them?
Comment by Igor (f2404) - Saturday, 24 December 2016, 07:14 GMT
There's a separate search option for keywords.
This particular option is called "Name, Description", and I believe it shouldn't search by any fields other than name and description.

So a fix here would be changing the wording of the option?
Comment by Igor (f2404) - Sunday, 25 December 2016, 14:31 GMT
Well, if current behavior is desired, then I think the answer would be yes.

Yes, this is by design...
