"Edit Paths" in Owners interface is unusable: Lists all repositories in an unsorted select box with no search
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

I tried to create an owner package with Owners tool (https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/owners/). However, when I try to edit paths, I get all repositories - that's all over 9000 of them - presented in one unsorted select box with no search. It is nearly impossible to find anything there.

I propose that the select box be changed to searchable select box - like "Tags" or "Subscribers" on task screen - or at the very least the list would be sorted by some human-comprehensible criteria.

I agree with this fully. Upstream has less than 10 repositories, we have more than 1000. I can see how this was overlooked by upstream but in our case it's totally unusable.

Let's assume so (if not someone please reopen!).
Thanks for the followup, very appreciated!
