Summary: Search results with one result are useless
AssignedTo: yelp-maint at gnome.bugs
ReportedBy: sa at whiz.se

CC: pkg-gnome-maintainers at lists.alioth.debian.org
GNOME version: 2.15/2.16
GNOME milestone: Unspecified
This bug was reported to the Debian BTS.
"Let's say I wan't to read manual page for dpkg.conf, and there is only one
page matching name "dpkg.conf".
When I type it in yelp_2.14 I get this funny search result page displaying me
one line with link to this manpage.
It should take me directly there. What else can user do when he has just one
link on page?"
Would be great to get some input on this. Are there usability issues with
jumping to a search result directly without showing the user that there
actually was only one match?
