Searching on GitLab

Hi all,

Some time ago, I set up a keyword bookmark ( <>) to search in tickets and MRs, by using a Google " <> %s" query. About a year ago, I noticed that the quality of results decreased to the point of uselessness, and I started to use GitLab's built-in search. This works fine, but it's not as good as Google's. Today, I discovered why the quality went down: GitLab changed its URLs. Previously, a ticket lived at e.g. <>. Today, it lives at <>. GitLab automatically redirects from the former to the latter, so old links/bookmarks still work great. But Google's search doesn't! The solution was easy: just update my keyword bookmarks to include the extra /-. Better search results, cooked up fresh. Perhaps you want some, too -- hence this email.
