Description

Reported by Keunes:

finding & 'joining' a project's team is not easy-as-in-your-face: when searching on the homepage for "lib.reviews" you get a page with "0 results found".

Requirement: as a user, when a page exists whose title is an exact match of a keyword I have in mind (e.g. a project name), I would like to be able to search said keyword from the main page and be presented with a link to the page in question.

Observed: on the main page there is only a search bar for the messages, which brings me to a https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Special:SearchTranslations query which doesn't present any result about pages. If I now searchthe keyword again in the Vector search bar, I reach a search which doesn't include the "Translating" namespace.

This task could be considered a general case of T62570: Allow "go" search feature to reach messages.

So the issue seems to be that we are assuming people search for messages, not projects?

That's arguably the biggest problem, yes.
