Continuing the great and growing tradition of bringing people together in small groups to attack focused problems, a search related code sprint has been planned. From May 9 to 11, in the headquarters of the University of Minnesota Libraries, a small but dedicated group of Drupal coders will be melding minds to bring forth the next generation of Drupal search.
## Why Search?
Drupal has a great search module. The search index it builds powers search on Drupal.org and thousands of other sites. It is a critical piece of the Drupal project and fundamental to countless sites built on Drupal. Being able to effectively search for issues and solutions is a cornerstone of keeping the Drupal.org community happy and productive, so investing in making search even better is akin to investing in Drupal's overall success.
