Don't tell anyone I said so, but I think the poor list search tool on
tigris.org is an example of the "not invented here" syndrome. Rather
than use some other method to search the archives (for example, one that
actually works), the tigris.org lists are indexed/searched using a
project also hosted on tigris.org itself.

I complained about it one time and was basically told "if the search
engine is so bad, why don't you help fix it instead of complaining about
it." I suspect that the lousy search engine problem will exist as long
as Subversion is hosted on tigris.org. Not much point in complaining
about it as long as this attitude exists...
