Are there any MediaWiki extensions that allow for
searching through the
text of uploaded files, such as Word documents, PDFs, etc. - whether it's
part of the standard search results or in a separate interface? Or is
anyone working on such a thing?
Aren't the contents of PDFs indexed in Lucene?
Nope, they're extracted and stuffed in metadata but not yet stored for
search -- see https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=21061
I have seem a couple one-off extensions for indexing .doc files or such,
but don't recall specifically what they are; should be floating somewhere
but I don't know how up to date or reliable they are.
