I am not sure which skin you used to search the repository, but I guess 
you used the default skin. The default skin only returns eml documents, 
so you actor wouldn't show up. If you want search the actor, you should go to 
http://localhost:8080/knb/style/skins/kepler to do a search.

Hope this is helpful.
