I had this experience this morning with the search results. My goals was to find the documentation on on_delete.

There were 10 results displayed on the first page, and 11 pages in total.
6 of those results were pre 2.x release notes.

The most promising result was result number 10: Model instance reference.

Model instance reference doesn't have anything for on_delete on it's page.
i.e. Phrase not found when searching

I think Django is helped by a good search system for their documentation.
Therefor, consider adding a ranking of sorts that ranks the documentation.

  • release notes are helpful when they are recent
  • pages that don't have the queried text on them is less helpful.

Thanks for this ticket, however it's rather an issue in the not in Django itself. You can open a new issue there.
