Feature request: index all branches for search and select which branch to search

right now, only master is generally indexed for search

https://help.github.com/articles/searching-code/

I would like all active branches indexed and also be able to select which branch I search.

also lift these restrictions:

  • Only files smaller than 384 KB are searchable.
  • You can’t use the following wildcard characters as part of your search query: . , : ; / \ ` ’ " = * ! ? # $ & + ^ | ~ < > ( ) { } []. The search will simply ignore these symbols.
