I'm trying to find threads relating to a problem with a particular version of a package, and that package happens to have a hyphen in it. So, I go and do the search for "gentoo-sources 2.4.12 acpi". The results arn't really what I was hoping for or expecting. Instead of searching for what I asked, the forums seem to have searched for "gentoosources acpi". Is it just me, or is the search ignoring version numbers and truncating package names with punctuation in them? This doesn't make it very easy to use the search, and means that nothing even closely related to my problem has been found.

OK, so now I understand the reasons for it, but that doesn't fix the problem. Searching for version numbers and proper package names seems like quite an important thing to do on this forum. Surely there must be some way to allow it. I can't find anything to do with my problem because I can't. And before someone suggests it, using google to search the forums didn't help.
