I have not seen anything in the RT4 discussions about updating
or including a full-text search function. The easiest way is to
use one of the existing database backends with full-text support,
either PostgreSQL or Oracle currently. It would be great if you
could get a more general full-text index support into RT with
Sphinx, since it can use ODBC to access the backend data for
indexing. The need to use a second SQL connection to Sphinx and
the ODBC backend interconnect to the RT datastore really
complicates the interface.

Good luck,
