CirrusSearch: intitle and incategory need to ignore any number of spaces after the colon
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The old search used to accept a space after the colon filter for incategory (but not for other filters), e.g. "incategory: Classical_mechanics". Cirrus search does not allow the space. This is likely to break existing links.

Looks to me like it just accepts any number of spaces after the : intitle
