I have started to work a bit on the REDUCE wiki. Maybe other developers want to have a look ... and join!
I did so far not find any way to search this wiki?
It would be helpful if someone knows how to do this or knows that this is really impossible.
I am going to comment on my own question:
After finding other project wikis that have a search bar, I
had an email exchange with the Sourceforge support on it.
Their first reply was:

I then replied that I assume we are using wikispaces, which
appears to me to be standard with Sourceforge, and I gave
them a link to our current wiki. Their reply:

I think that a missing search is a HUGE disadvantage of a
wiki. So I would like to switch very soon. I am going to
invesitigate the options now.
Please comment - and I might need a mouseclick by someone
with the necessary priviliges at some point.
