Bug Description

Currently available for Debian...

YaCy is a search engine for the Web. It is neither a search portal nor a portal software but a peer-to-peer software that works on principles similar to file sharing. The difference is that you do not share any kind of data but web indexes.
YaCy also generates the indexes it organizes. YaCy is a web crawler for everybody, without censorship and central data retention:
co-operative crawling; support for other crawlers
intranet indexing and search
ad-hoc capture of random websites; all users have equal rights
comprehensive concept to anonymize the users' pages
To be able to perform a search using the YaCy network, every user has to set up their own node. More users are leading to higher index capacity and better distributed indexing performance.
