Ah well that's a big issue - I've found it very useful to find links to questions that I've asked and had answered a couple of years
previously several times ;-) Eyes passim as they say in Private Eye :-(

Well, I could not find this particular one but it is newish and hard to find unique search terms,
but others came up, so I think the bots are indexing OK.
Are others confident from experience that searching does work?
I doubt if moving tickets will be worth the effort (since it is in such short supply ;-).
I'd prefer the cheapest most organic method of just saying on the Boost site that the way to report issues is now to use github.
