With bug 1029454 we created a /betasearch view behind waffle. 

This bug is about altering and enhancing the search code with the django_filters package [0] to allow users to free text search and/or limit by groups, skills, timezone and other profile data.

After evaluating the results of the experiment, new bugs will be filled to move code to the normal /search view

OK the /betasearch page now uses django-filter and we also have a
few filters for demo. 

Further steps:
 - Expand to more filters, like country, external accounts, etc
 - Improve the UI: We currently use a hidden div with all the filters. 
   - Let's make this beautiful
   - Let's make this visible on load when there are search filters in place.
 - We can always explore more, like on-the-fly updates of the results.

Yep, I`m interested.  Regarding the UI, I think it would make sense to let the users add as many filters as they want instead of cluttering the interface with lots of options to choose from.  I will implement my idea then we can discuss on it, thoughts?

A couple of thoughts regarding /betasearch UI:

* For fields like skills and groups that have many entries, we can experiment with some kind of auto completion.

* We can show an overview of the fields we are filtering our results near "search" field, with a small `x` button in case user wants to revert that filter to it's default value.

If you think you are ready to implement your idea, I suggest to go for it and then discuss for further enhancements. Also, if it works for you, we can start tracking /betasearch with a tracker bug blocked by new features/enhancements.

Yeap, I will have more time during the end of the week/weekend to work on it, you can expect a patch by then. Thanks! :)
Hey :chromano, since there is long time since your last activity regarding /betasearch would you like to catch up on IRC (#commtools) regarding any further changes? Teams have changed so i am not sure that the rest of the current members are informed about this effort.

The django_filter experiment has been removed from mozillians.org as part of the search refactor (django-haystack). I am marking this bug as wontfix.
