It appears that the current sort for the "list" view in the search results (actors and repositories) is by actor_id, rather than alphabetical or by relevance.

Currently, only name is searched, and no other text is returned, so alphabetical would make sense. See also "/p/qubit-toolkit/issues/detail?id=1965": issue 1965 re adding fields to the authority/repository search index.

Sorting is actually by relevance (Lucene term score); sorting by alphabetical is a separate feature enhancement, but we'd need a new use case for that. Closing.
