AFAIK, you submitted those "eye" images this month, so they will be
included in the next release, which is a few days away.
the current search tool does not look inside the "incoming" folder, only
in the released repository.

Last time the website had a major redesign about one year ago. Concrete
proposals (either on this list or bugzilla) are welcomed.
