I think that finding stuff on d.o today is far easier and better than it was 4
or 5 or 6 years ago, and I think part of it is due to the organizing that
Victor thinks has hurt it (and part of it is probably due to Apache Solr, as
well).  Before, it would take me ages to find something I knew was there, but
couldn't locate.  Now I can practically go right to what I'm looking for w/o
wasting time looking for it, and searches bring up relevant documents more
times than not.

It doesn't help with searching, but it does show that there are definitely
Drupal related questions and answers.
