Brian, thanks for the feedback. I cannot say anything about improving
the search capabilities of docs.scribus.net (I'm just an user),  but you
are certainly right about the search limitations of the wiki -- I'm
going to search for some solution.

As for the mailing list search engine: http://search.srem.org/

It's admittedly not that obvious, where to look for it:) Dear Scribus
devs, could we have the info about http://search.srem.org/ in the
mailing list signature?
