Search results should give priority to exact matches

The Nominatum search results doesn’t seem suggest exact matches first. Example: Search for ‘Forland’. The search result is:

Førland, Tysvær, Rogaland, Norway Førland, Kvinesdal, Vest-Agder, Norway Forland, Sund, Hordaland, Norway Førland, Norway

It’s great that this also matches on Førland, but the exact match, here ‘Forland, Sund, Hordaland, Norway’, should be displayed first.

This has been already resolved in the current Nominatim version. Will be deployed on the OSM server with the next DB upgrade.
