    Dear all
    thank you very much for your time during the call last week and for taking time to comment on the proposed mockup for the new homepage.
    I’ve collected all your comments and organized them following the priority you gave them – they are all quite well aligned with the Roadmap that we presented. You can find them in this document https://docs.google.com/document/d/1XjNtbnESVxkM5tSf9FKE-tAWGRxbepRoH0AV
    Despite we understand the urgent need of an improved search facility, we believe that it has no sense to implement it before the improved user profilying and metadata schema are in place, so we suggest to start developing this feature in the second release scheduled after P12.
    Again thank you very much for your support, we will keep you up to date about the status of the release.

    Dear Sara,
    thanks for pulling this together. I will review over the next couple of
    days.
    Can I gently push back on your statement that “Despite we understand the
    urgent need of an improved search facility, we believe that it has no sense
    to implement it before the improved user profilying and metadata schema are
    in place”?
    It’s not necessary to do implement improved search in a single step. It
    would already be a great improvement if the search was enhanced to index
    and search across the *contents* of common file formats (even just
    Microsoft Office and PDF). This could be done as a quick win, and the more
    sophisticated options you mention could then be done later.
    I strongly encourage your team to consider whether such a two phase
    approach would be possible.
    Thanks,
    Andrew.
