Component/s: Help Wanted
If you search for tasks in Help Wanted (specifically, I searched for Java tasks) none are found. (there were a couple dozen the last time I checked, and I put in a few that definitely haven't been closed)
1) Go to Help Wanted.
2) Click "I want to help out!"
3) Click "Programming and Development"
4) Select "Java" and click the "Find me something to do" button
UPDATE: It appears that the elastic search with all the old tasks has been erased, because when I add a new task it's visible.
