Two things here.

We are all FAQ maintainers. The FAQ is maintained by the community on
the honor system, much like a wiki. The password is right there on the

Regarding search, I don't think this is an issue. If you search for
"edit held" as a simple string and the entry does not contain that
exact string (because it contains "edit a held message"), it won't

individual words to match (Keywords any or all), or a regular

If you are suggesting that the term "Simple string" would better be
described as "Exact phrase" or something similar, you may be correct,
but getting this actually changed on python.org is a 'windmill' I'll
