you asked for search operations, but it is the same for search.

If you look into 'setting anonymity level' section of the gnunet-publish
man page, you see that level 1 (the default) 'you use the  standard 
anonymous  routing  algorithm  (which does not explicitly leak your
identity).' A level greater 1 'increases the amount of cover traffic
your own traffic will get, at the  expense  of  performance', if you
like to make it harder for a powerful adversary to do traffic analysis.

I would like to build an application on top the DHT
and FS. I want to know what are the privacy features.

For instance, can someone know that I downloaded a
particular file? can someone know that I am sharing
a particular file?

It seems like search operation is done only with
anonymous level 0. Does it mean that other people
on the network can know what I am searching for?
