I found an open source search engine, what looks-like useable:
Strange that I've never heard of it before, it's OSS since 2013:

When I search for the word "license" in the source code I find many
different licenses like GPL2 or higher, LGPL, MIT, Apache, Lucent,
OpenSSL, Eric Young.

The search engine did not found all pages, but after adding them
everything was found directly.
And many sites are allready indexed.

There is an advanced search with many possibilities:

Disadvantage: There is also a "commercial version" what seems to be
faster, not sure about the license there. Not sure what I am using when
I use the webinterface at Does somebody know someone who
uses for sure the OSS version?

Yes, I've heard about YaCy. But when I tested it, I found it not
useable. e.g. here: more sites here:

Any comments?
