Most newer plugins in the plugins directory are not showing up in search results. We’re working on a solution, but it will probably be a few days before everything’s back to normal.
Lame, we know. Apologies for the hassle.

don’t know if it helps at all but a few that were complaining had their plugin show in every search, except the default ‘relevance’.
Do you have specific examples?
not now.. at the time I was thinking of this thread:
But a quick search now finds the plugin straight away.
However there are still inconsistencies, try a search for eshop, and then eShop.
I see the same results for “eshop” and “eShop”. What do you see?
They weren’t listing in the same order like they do now, so I guess it got fixed, or my insanity is playing up again…
Another possible bug with the plugins directory? I recently updated my plugin Portfolio Slideshow
The download for 0.5.2 is now available in the directory. However, when people try to automatically update from the Plugins panel on their WP install, they get a “Download failed. Not found.” error, like this:
Although the file path in the error message is correct and works if you copy/paste it.
Thanks for taking care of this! I’d like to add that the relevant results seem to be loading somewhat in reverse. For example, search for “Akismet” and you’ll see that Akismet is the last result on the first page.
That does look like a bug. I’ll see if we can fix it.
It was a core bbPress bug: http://trac.bbpress.org/ticket/1301#comment:5
I thought it was fixed weeks ago. It’s fixed now.
Could this issue also be causing or related to #15138 (newly tagged versions are 404-ing) ?
Unrelated, but that problem is also fixed.
Search should be working again.
