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
slowness, but maybe we could tweak nginx to keep search results in cache
for a few hours.
Florian raised an important issue regarding the possibility of denial of
service. Ideas on how to mitigate that, either in the Data Service, or
nginx at guix.gnu.org?

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?
