#2129 closed defect (fixed)

Search does not find some results based on two keywords

Reported by: Alexander Shopov Owned by: Jonas Borgström

This bug was found in 0.8.4 (mod-python, Apache, on Fedora Core 4), but I could reproduce it with Edgewall's current public installation on http://projects.edgewall.com/trac/

Trac's search subsystem does not find results based on two keywords in the following case:

  • 1st keyword: the name of the committer
  • 2nd keyword: some part of the log message

So, if I search "ash" (without the quotes) - I get many results including all changesets made by the user ash. (trac highlights the occurrences - they are the name of the committer).

If I search "specialFEATURE" I get many results as well, some of which are commit messages containing the term "specialFEATURE" Some of them are made by the user ash.

If I search for "ash specialFEATURE" (without the quotes, single space between the words) - I get no results.

How to replicate on this trac installation

Used terms:

  • committer: cboos
  • log message: Shun


  1. Two keywords: http://projects.edgewall.com/trac/search?q=cboos+Shun&ticket=on&changeset=on&wiki=on
  2. Committer "cboos": http://projects.edgewall.com/trac/search?q=cboos&ticket=on&changeset=on&wiki=on
  3. Message "Shun": http://projects.edgewall.com/trac/search?q=Shun&ticket=on&changeset=on&wiki=on
  4. One of the missed results: http://projects.edgewall.com/trac/changeset/2301

Of course - you should take in mind that this ticket itself - #2129 has changed the results as it mentions both keywords in the description of the ticket and is itself findable when searching for the two keywords.

But the question stays as the search finds none of the other results.
