Wouldn't it be better if you'd just build an external search service?
Getting a list of packages and descriptions should be possible no? (just
asking, not 100% sure)
I doubt the maintainers are just going to come out and say "ok, this guy
has waited long enough, lets take his contribution in". If they didn't care
about the search 2.5 years ago why would they care now.
Sorry for being snide here but my impression is that Warehouse could had
been shipped a while ago instead of getting rewritten
everal times. I'm not saying that's bad, it's just that there's a
mismatch in goals here.
