« changes to searching on BMO

two changes to searching on BMO have just landed:

"simple search" no longer searches comments by default.


previously simple search performed a full-text search in the summary field and all comments, resulting in painfully slow queries.  you now have to opt-in to searching comments.

this change will not impact any existing bookmarks, which will continue to search comments.

"google search" added.


for some time we've been providing a sitemap to google to allow them to index public bugs on BMO; we've added a quick mechanism to search BMO via google.
