Module re-organisation and better search

Idea#86

Stage: Active

Campaign: Drupal.org

Trying to find a module is a nightmare!

Well... It's not a nightmare to find a module you know exists but finding a module that solves your problem is very difficult and the current http://drupal.org/project/modules just doesn't cut it.

Example:

I'm using ubercart on drupal 6 and trying to see what payment processors are available.

I can search for Commerce / Advertising, Drupal 6 and perhaps a keyword of ubercart.

I get 91 modules, if i use ubercart payment as the keyword i get 119.

What's worse is that i get anything that even mentions ubercart such as lm_paypal where the author mentions looking at ubercart for a full fledge ecommerce system. The module has nothing to do with ubercart...

A partial solution could be user tagging of projects instead of the few greedy categories.

The results are too detailed resulting in lots of pagination on a search for pretty much anything, a table of modules might be nice with the option to expand for full description.
