Discovery Weekly Update for the week starting 2018-05-28

Chris Koerner-2
Hello,
We're back! Here is our post Hackathon update this week from the
Search Platform team.

As always, feedback and questions welcome.

== Discussions ==

=== Search ===
* Erik worked on evaluating and building out features provided by
`query_explorer` functionality of learning-to-rank plugin, there is
lots of good info in the ticket [0]
* David worked on allowing searches with "all:" keyword to also work
on non-English projects, and not only with its translations
("searchall") [1]
* David increased the cirrus indices to have more shards for
enwiki_general, viwiki_general and wikidatawiki_content [2]
* David reverted an earlier patch that had depreciated the global
namespace handling of the prefix keyword; the new patch was deployed —
prefix and associated InputBox forms should work as before. [3]
* Trey and Gehel deployed the updated search/extra plugin and
search/extra-analysis-slovak plugin with Slovak Stemmer [4] and will
be available after a re-indexing [5]
* Stas enabled deep category support on all wikis (except private) [6]
* Stas reindexed wikidata to enable support for searching for string &
external ID property values [7], [8]
* Stas implemented basic text indexing for Lexemes [9]
