Cool!  To be clear, guix-website-test actually makes a search query on a
Data Service instance, right?  I guess that explains part of the

I’d be happy to see that happen!  We would need the changes against
guix-artwork.git as well as (maybe) changes to the nginx config in
maintenance.git.  How should we proceed?
