I would like to request to reopen this ticket.

Searching the repository seems to me to be a fundamental functionallity and neither RepoSearch nor SupoSE seem to work very well, at least for me.

At least so far, an inability to search to repository is about the only serious weakness I have seen in trac for our usage model.

Maybe this is really a SubVersion weakness, but I do not know anything to do about that and it would make Trac more valuable than it already is if it provided this function to SubVersion repositories.

Why don't you install http://trac-hacks.org/wiki/RepoSearchPlugin as already said above?

Replying to anonymous:

I have. As I said, it does not work well.

There is a new th:MultiRepoSearchPlugin that I have not yet tried, and I plan to. If it works well, for our own purposes I will be happy.

My point is that an ability to search the repository seems fundamental to me for a tool like Trac. Trac does many things to make working with a repository easier.

For our usage, at least so far, search is the only big capability that it does not provide at all as part of the base package.

Hacks are great for all kinds of things - even fairly big ones like the wysiwyg editor - but Search strikes me as something that should be built in. For example, search should honor repository access control. Maybe the new hack does. The old ones did not look to at all (but, I never got them working well enough to dig into those details to where I am sure of that).

I support having better search - using eg. lucene/elasticsearch/Solr
