Discuss.openedx.org search erroneously shows no results, for something that is definitely here

I searched for “3d54f284f82b61e693ad652d8d6e46a226fcb36d”, expecting to find this post, which is an exact match. But the Discuss search doesn’t find it. It makes me wonder how many other things I’m not finding via search.

Is this a known issue?

You can find it with 3d54f284f82b61e693ad652d8d6e46a226fcb36d site:discuss.openedx.org - Google Search

I suspect it’s due to the text occurring in a code block in the middle of a longer string; perhaps it’s not indexed for that reason.
