That is also cool.  Thanks.  But if the aim is to improve the signal to 
noise ratio on the list, it should be made as easy and convenient as 
possible to search past threads.

I believe that when people post FAQ-like  questions here they are as 
likely as not in a crisis situation (as perceived by them, and who are 
we to judge?).

I've been in enough "crisis situations" (and posted enough FAQ-like 
questions) that I can say with some confidence that making a list 
specific search easy and quick to do, and without having to review the 
Google search engine syntax, would likely improve the signal to noise ratio.

Though as I have said before, the ratio on this list is already pretty 
damn good, in comparison to other lists. ;-)

So, would it be difficult to put a search feature on the official 
"CentOS List Archives" page?  I've never done it, so I don't know.
