That will confuse people more than help I fear; such a query is an and,
not an or.  There is no way to currently search for all PRs with aaaa in a
text _or_ in a multitext.

Yes.  This would also allow people to add to the PR.  We should also put a
bit in the submission form that says "if you have things like config

you get this mail and then do that".

   The contract type is `' with a response time of 3 business hours.
