[aur-general] The search engine needs improvements

Hi there,

So yesterday I was looking if someone had already made a pkgbuild for the rar archiver. I typed 'rar' in the search engine and got 1224 matches. Since rar wasn't at the top of the results, I thought it didn't exist and created it under the name 'rar-official'.

And this morning, I receive a message telling me there is already a pkgbuild for rar. *Sigh* Now, I agree that I could have searched a little longer, but that doesn't change the fact that the search engine is too basic and should at least show the exact match in first position.

That said, could someone delete the rar-official package please ?

Thank you.
