thanks for your feedback regarding our mockups for the software search. We

Please check the new search at:

Please let me know what you think of the current state.

Nice but the web page should make it obvious that packages from any
repo other than the official distro was potentially not reviewed by
anyone, make no promise whatsoever and that adding the repo might
have surprising consequences.

Could you provide me a text for this?
I can add this as a popup for the first time the user clicks
on unsupported packages with the option to remember the warning.

The search result for Factory doesn't actually show the package from
Factory but from the devel project.

This is a known limitation of the obs api, let's see if we can fix that.

I'm not sure it makes sense to have both 'release' and 'update' for
packages in the Distro. Usually you want to prefer the latter, esp
since the updater will suggest to install that within the next 24
hours anyways.

Right, let's merge the 'release' and 'update' line to 'official', which links
the latest official version.
