in thread GET access to Super Search, and corresponding shortcut?

So find someone on pmdev who you think you can motivate to produce the patch. Or who you think would agree to mentor you as a new pmdev member

Well, without false modesty and in all earnestness I doubt I would have the technical skills and know how to do so...

Creating a pseudo-URL-scheme shortcut ([supersearch://...]) isn't likely to happen as the number of combinations that you can put into a super search query are too many to make such work very well (way too many option names to memorize).

So am I abnormal in that I often compose Google advanced searches manually? ;-)

    You don't have the technical skill to find someone on pmdev ?

    Google advanced searches don't have as many keywords to memorize. And a pseudo-URL-scheme shortcut would encourage people to share simple searches over complex ones, which I don't want to encourage.

    What are the obvious names for all of the form elements on super search? I doubt any two monks will agree on most of those. And they won't match what super search is using anyway so someone would have to write a translator between the two naming schemes. And you aren't going to do it, so I don't feel bad for refusing to do it.

    You should share searches that you've verified anyway, so there isn't much disadvantage to having to verify the search in order to get the spec for how to share it.
