How are you planning to reduce dependence on Search::InvertedIndex?
My thought for category and locale searches is that anything typed in
the standard search box should search body, category and locale,
perhaps with increased weighting where the search term matches a
category or locale. I'd also quite like to take advantage of
CGI::Wiki's fuzzy title match, for the cases when we fail to match
exactly. Stemming could possibly be useful - a search on "pubs"
should find the same things as a search on "pub".
If there are any problems with querying the inverted
than updating it), I would be interested and willing to assist, [...]
I haven't come across any.
