Can the OBS package search interface please be updated to return packages in an order more relevant to users and maintainers wanting to look at the package source? Searching for packages will most likely be for the current latest or released versions, development versions?

I suggest the following sort order:

  1. Projects listed in the "Main Projects" section in /project/list_public
  2. Projects that are defined as the development project of the search result in question
  3. all projects excluding home:
  4. all projects excluding home:branches:
  5. all projects

please try the current version on build.opensuse.org, it uses some weight based algorithm that are not exactly what you describe but something we came up as.

E.g. home:branches appear higher if they are active, but move down over time.
