If you are willing to write java code, another possible solution is to write your own I_CmsDocumentFactory class.  The document factory is used to help build the search index, and is responsible for extracting search fields from the input document.  We took this approach so that we could quickly search the contents of a product catalog, and found that it was not very hard to develop.

For example, you can extend org.opencms.search.documents.A_CmsVfsDocument, override the "newInstance" method and add search fields to the returned document (like "author").  You can then specify which resources should use your new document factory in the opencms-search.xml configuration file.
