Feature request: search code for "not archived" repositories

Solved! Go to Solution.

Description

 

In the advanced search page, when searching for code there is no way to exclude archived projects.

 

For example when looking within an organization's repositories for projects that use a specific Gem (package) version, in e.g. Gemfile or Gemfile.lock the search results include all the instance of that gem in archived projects as well making it cumbersome to identify the important ones.

 

Another alternative would be to display which projects are archived in the search results.

 

Here is an example from Github's organization:

 

archived_search_results.png

 

This repository is archived:
https://github.com/github/github-graphql-rails-example

 

It would be fantastic if we could filter out those results.
