Howdy.  Back in April we discussed the results from Seb's survey.  He 
showed that the quality of search results was the number one user 
complaint.  In a post we discussed addressing this complaint:


I think we all agreed that zope.org should put its customers first by 
taking action on the number one complaint.  The proposed action was to 
make the default search box go to the Google search, same as the search 
box at the bottom of:


We deferred the decision, thinking that we could implement better 
relevance within a couple of months.  Clearly that hasn't happened and 
isn't likely to happen in the next couple of months.

I'd like to get people's opinions (+1, 0, -1) on the following proposal:

   "zope.org should make Google the default full-text search and return 
to Zope relevance
   searching as soon as it is available."

Remember, this isn't construed as a decision, which I think rests with 
Martijn to make.  Rather, I'm looking for what people on this list 
think, as input to Martijn.
