The 'Advanced' bug search page gives no help on boolean search syntax. From this, I have no idea if the 'boolean' check box actually makes any difference. I also have no idea what the syntax is. This is very annoying, since, when searching for a bug, I don't want to waste time trying to work out if the bug doesn't exist or if I've made a mistake in my syntax. I also don't want to page through 100's of pages if the boolean 'and' query isn't working.

How to repeat:
Visit the Advanced Search page on bug.mysql.com (http://bugs.mysql.com/search.php)

Suggested fix:
Give a short introduction, either on the page itself, or via a link, to what exactly the syntax is.

There is a link to information about Boolean mode on the search page now.

Funny, it seems to me that it was me who initially reported the bug, and now it says it was "Mike Moran".
