currently i would rather like to put that onto the 'todo when we have a
bit more time again' list.

also i think there are some important questions IF we do that:

- which of our many source repos do we want in such a thing?
- how and when do they get updated/synced?

it seems that stuff needs a lot of perl, postgres as db and a few other
components, most important a search engine called 'xapian' i would like
to have the time understanding it before using it.

besides that it seems atleast 'do-able' (even if i really do not like
perl code anymore ;))

kind regards
