Actually there was a recent improvement to optionally select an upload to search into, see https://github.com/fossology/fossology/pull/1804 and https://github.com/fossology/fossology/issues/1280

I don't think it made it to 3.9 tough.

so you would like to searcha  file named with a particular string within one 
upload only.

Please consider the following steps:

1. go to the license main view (licenses left, directory structure right)

2. Above the file view, choose flat from "flat vs. folders"

3. filter among the files by entering a filter term in the upper right text box.

-> should bring a readme only for the upload you re in.

Kind regards, Michael

Recently upgraded Fossology to Version 3.8.1.  In old version of Fossology, it 
was easy to search for a file within an uploaded package; however, seems like 
in the new version, when you search for a file within a package, it seems like 
it is looking at ALL packages that have been loaded.  For example, below I am 
searching for a “README” file within the uu-4.5.zip package and it returned 
stuff from other packages.  HELP!
