    Well here is something to improve

    I wanted to reindex my search index and got the error: 'Publishing Module is disabled!"

    Well heading over to Admin - Modules looking for the 'Publishing Module' but that does not exists.
    And of course the Search & Indexes Module was active.

    Well it seems that you need to have 'Feeds & Notifications' Module active in order for the 'Search & Indexes' Module to be working.

    a) The error message should at least read 'The Feeds & Notifications Module is disabled' instead of the Publishing Module is disabled 
    b) It would be nice if you Activate 'Search & Indexes' Module you get a warning. This Module needs Feeds & Notifications to be activated in order to work. (of course only if Feeds & Notification is disabled)
    c) When disabling Feeds & Notification you should be warned that 'Search & Indexes' will stop working fully (only if Search & Indexes is turned on)
    d) at least change the text of Forms & Notifications 
    Use Feeds & Notifications to publish frequently updated information. You can publish an RSS feed for a blog, news, or events on the website and the users can subscribe to this feed. Also needed for Search & Indexing to work.
    e) at least change the text for Search & Indexes
    Define different sets of content to be searched, using the internal search engine of your website
    Needs 'Feeds & Notifications to be activated.

    Or even better. How about make it clear to any user that if you turn on 'Search & Indexes' it will work and if you trun it off it won't. So people would not have to try and error what the problem is. 
    It's good to have a J-Person at hand :-)
