This is my first Trac ticket, so please forgive any errors.

I have a client hand-off today, and wanted to add Mark Jaquith's excellent plugin, WP Help, to their site.

In the WP Plugin screen, I searched for the keywords "Wp Help". The plugin wasn't on the first page so I Googled and found the plugin, to make sure it hadn't been removed from the repo. After seeing it was still available, I went back to my client's site and started paging through the results till I got to page 6 of 311, which is when I gave up because life is too short :)

My expectation would be that the plugin appears on the first page when searching using the plugin name as the keyword(s).

Side note, as an alternate search I tried searching by "Author". I used "Jacquith" which returned no results, then "Mark Jacquith" but still no results. Looks like that might be broken.
