GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 689345
Give priority to application names when searching
Last modified: 2016-03-31 14:00:47 UTC
So; I've got simple-scan and gnome-boxes installed. I look for "simple s" in the shell, and the first hit is gnome-boxes. I truly don't get why gnome-boxes is given as the first result here, but it doesn't seem right.
In any case, matches on the name of the software/package should probably be sorted first than other matches.
It seems that search is matching against the generic name:

Looking at this again, the problem seems to be with Boxes. Searching the GenericName *should* be fine.
The issue is that "Simple" isn't a good word to include in GenericName . "Virtual Machine Viewer" seems more appropriate in this case.

Remove 'simple' from the generic name
I don't think we'll be pushing non-critical fixes to 3.6 anymore so changing the version.
