[docs] Fwd: Order in Python documentation search results

in January there was an attempt by Hernan Grecco to improve the order in
documentation search. Even a patch for Sphinx was accepted, however the
improvement wasn't implemented on docs.python.org. It would be nice to be
done. See forwarded message for details.

Thank you for reaction, Drekin

The patch was accepted into sphinx. What is missing is a new sphinx
release and that this release is installed in docs.python.org. It
would be really nice if this functionality is available in
docs.python.org (that was the original aim of the patch) but it is
outside my reach. Maybe you can e-mail the maintainer of the site.
