Not entirely true. The main site search is using a Google Custom Search, and the international forums are indexed and included in that search engine.

Example:
https://wordpress.org/search/Kana%C5%82

It may be desirable to do individual language searching on those forums though.

Indeed, but it is really confusing for our users. Especially if they search for Plugin-Names and Functions and they get another URL with mostly english results.

It may be desirable to do individual language searching on those forums though.

Yes, please! There is a language specific search for these forums already:
http://de.forums.wordpress.org/search.php?q=test

But it is not used on the start page. Maybe this can be changed (and make the global google custom search an additional option or so)

After taking a quick look at this, I don't think we can re-use the existing wordpress.org/search/ template for Rosetta sites.

The main reason is that it's built statically for the english variant, and localising it isn't really easily possible. Instead, this should be created within the rosetta plugins somehow.

That's not entirely true either, see #121.

In our new bbPress 2.x-powered forums, the theme has a forums-only search.

Tracking bug for upgrading to bbPress 2.x is #1544.

After the upgrade to bbPress 2.x in #1544, the search form on the main page shows results from the localized forum: https://de.wordpress.org/support/search/test/.

[3918] introduced a regression, localized forum search is broken again.

#12 @SergeyBiryukov

Any chance to adjust [3918] so that bb_base_search_form() is only used on the English forums?

#13 @jmdodd

In 3926:

Forums Theme: Differentiate between international and support forum search.

Fixes regression introduced in [3918].

See #347.
