I will enable it but there isn't much content to search. Mostly it
is links to other sub-areas of RTEMS.  Maybe Chris can create a
custom Block which is the google search of rtems.org like we
had on the old site.

Chris.. can it go on the upper right and use some of that dead
green space?

What is a home tab?  Do you mean that the left most item on
the primary menu (horizontal at top under logo) should have a
Home as the first item.

This requires URL rewriting so I was waiting until
we got to the production server.
