1. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=Thunderbird
2. put "crash subscribe newsgroup" in summary  (the user's actual bug report was "Thunderbird crashes on trying to subscribe to a newsgroup" in bug 918346)

actual results:
lists 8 bugs 
bug 231096  Can't subscribe to imap folder or newsgroup RESOLVED FIXED
bug 238688  Cannot subscribe to newsgroups with a + in its name VERIFIED FIXED
bug 309214  Unlabeled controls on newsgroup Subscribe dialog when using filter. RESOLVED FIXED

bug 670935  News crash [@ nsMsgKeySet::Output(char**) ] | [@ nsMsgNewsFolder::UpdateSummaryFromNNTPInfo ] and [@ nsMsgKeySet::Output ] (Mac) RESOLVED FIXED
bug 918346  Thunderbird crashes on trying to subscribe to a newsgroup UNCONFIRMED

NOTE/expected result:  
bug 918346 is what prompted this bug report against BMO - 918346 would not have been filed if the expected results had been better, such as ...
 bug 709830 nsXULTreeBuilder::IsContainer when trying to subscribe to newsgroups 
and the recently filed 
 bug 917955 crash in PL_strncasecmp | nsCaseInsensitiveCStringComparator::operator()(char const*, char const*, unsigned int, unsigned int) during newsgroup subscribe 

Note: recommendation list is different if using https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=Mailnews%20Core

Note: bug 917955 is in Mailnews Core, but glob sez "guided _does_ include mailnews core" in the product=thunderbird search

side question: does Mailnews Core include product "Thunderbird" in its search?

> side question: does Mailnews Core include product "Thunderbird" in its search?

no it doesn't.
the data for it is https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/extensions/GuidedBugEntry/web/js/products.js
in the "related" array.

possible-duplicates does a mysql full-text search on the bug summaries, and sorts by relevance DESC then bug_id DESC.

917955 is matched by the query, but with a low relevance pushing it off the list (it's the 20th result).

i suspect the query should bump the relevance for open bugs, but may be difficult to do in a cross-database way.

Is age, or last change date, also a factor in determining relevance?
