When I hit the "Documentation" tab on the web site, I see a page labeled
"Manuals for LilyPond 2.16.2".  However, when I do a search, for
instance for "italic lyrics", I get a search of the 2.17 documentation.
That is, the text in the google search box says
"site:lilypond.org/doc/v2.17 italic lyrics".

I believe this would be non-trivial to fix properly.  The search box is a
standard component of our website and is thus included in both stable and
unstable builds exactly the same.

Last September a very similar problem was reported against the 2.16
documentation. It was fixed and verified:


I'm wondering if this is the same problem and that perhaps it never was
properly fixed as part of issue 2845.


No - that bug was returning results that were too _old_ for current stable. This mail is pointing out that we return search results that are too _new_ for current stable. However, as we use a common search box for all the docs, development and stable, we have to choose to search either stable or development, and we choose the latter.
