The Statalist FAQ advises that 

"User-written programs accessible from the StataCorp 
web site have essentially the same status as those 
published on Statalist. Their posting there is 
basically a matter of convenience to users and is 
not an official endorsement by StataCorp." 

Strictly speaking, I believe that this applies even 
to those programs that happen to have been written by 
people who were at the time of publication employees of 
StataCorp, in this case Ronna Cong. 

As a consequence, programs such as -clfit- 
on http://www.stata.com/users/ are not represented
by any keywords at all, in so far as they are not 
included in entries in the *.key files, explained
in the help for -keyfiles-, which are what -search- 
[narrow sense] examines. 

Only if you use -findit- or -search, all- will 
you find -clfit-, but not because of its keywords, 
but because of write-ups at that website that are 
detected by an internet search. 

This is not to disagree with Bill on 
the merits of -clfit-. But it is clear that there 
is no way that user-written programs, other than 
those published via the STB or SJ, can systematically 
and practically be included in the .key files.
