           Summary: Search for media not in category (similar to Mayflower
                    Search)
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: any
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Lucene Search
        AssignedTo: rain...@eunet.rs
        ReportedBy: test5...@myway.com


With Mayflower search, there was the possibility to search for a term and
exclude all files in a category. This helped when categorizing images at
Commons.

 Sample: 

   "Tree -Category:Trees"

  
http://toolserver.org/~tangotango/mayflower/search.php?q=Tree&ic=&ec=Trees&ft=any&sc=gt&sv=&ds=&t=n&z=12&a=3
(broken)

It would be nice if this was possible with the standard search at Commons
(possibly with Lucene). 

*Mayflower search hasn't been updated and is broken for some time.
*A current workaround is to compare the list of results from search with the
list from categories.
*[[Bugzilla:21317]] might be related to this.
