Question Synaptic search options - more choices


Allo!

I have noticed when using Synaptic the user can point the search function to "Look In" description && name, dependencies, version etc.

Can I search through a particular Section?

E.g. I want to filter out all results from all sections except System Administration...

P.S. searching LQ reveals the nearest newest post, that may have never been resolved...

Well that's a tough one for sure.
I would tend to look towards the Debian packages site first and see what the links produce.
Under "View package lists" I would probably View the packages in the stable distribution and filter from there to further refine my search query.
I guess...I would look beyond synaptic.
