self-hosted instances with federated search (hound or similar?)
Often it would be cool to run your own Gitlab, GOGS, or other self-hosted git server. But code on that server can't be seen by others, and you can't search for public projects on other people's servers.
It would be amazing if there were support for an external search provider, and options in the config to allow reading from it, and allow it to read your instance's data.
- suitable external search provider (issues, code, wikis, the like) to interface with
- config options/ui for allowing reading from that global service, and for allowing it to index your server
- internals for asking the external search index, and submitting repos/changes to the index
Granted, I dunno if a good option for providing that 3rd party search server exists, yet.
Maybe it's cost prohibitive. But it would still be very nice.
