It's not just with google that we fail though, sadly. The search within squeaksource is not so useful either. For example almost the first thing I did when you mentioned it was to look for the 'ss2' project - which didn't get found. Sure 'tinywiki' was found but we must be able to do better at this kind of thing somehow. More thoughtful tagging would help a lot. 

One of the real annoyances I have with the 'cool names clique' that has long existed in software project naming-land is that it horribly obscures things. In fact that annoyance was why I labelled the host windows code as 'Ariethfa Ffenestri' - as a tweak to the nose of 'cool names', since it is just a literal translation of the 'proper' project name. 

Obviously one thing that would help a lot is us collectively making better use of SqueakMap. Fat chance of that...
