Search suggest: Prioritize namespaces
Open, LowestPublic

Description

Once the multiple namesspaces are enabled from T26214, it would be good if namespaces could be priorized.

Example: On my wiki categories are more important as articles. So I'd like to give categories a higher prio on the suggestions.

This would be for auto-complete to namespaces (that doesn't exist right now), we currently don't have anything right now that fills in the namespaces automatically.

This is now effective on some wikis, searching multiple namespaces at once introduce new ranking problems and had a side effect to disable the completion suggester.
Best would be to adapt the completion suggester to allow searching over multiple namespaces so that it'll be easy to adapt the scoring formula to take page namespaces into account.
