Github search is broken: no results for string that is clearly present

Steps to reproduce

Go to this search URL, or search for IOSurfaceCapturer on the Chromium repo.

Expected behavior

Results should at least include this line on the master branch

Actual behavior

We couldn’t find any code matching ‘IOSurfaceCapturer’ in chromium/chromium


  • There are many other examples of strings being missing.
  • I’ve tried to report this via Twitter, to no avail. GitHub seems to be dead/unresponsive on Twitter.
  • (I tried to hyperlink the relevant things above, but got some crazy-ass “new users can only post two links” error message. What’s up with that?!)
