Hi Rayson,

I guess this comes still from the time when more than a few projects were living on sunsource.net.
I'll ask if it is safe to change these settings or if there is any harmful impact expected.

Why are we intentionally blocking Google (and other search engines)
from indexing our site??

Yes, Markmail now has most of the mail discussions -- BUT the FAQ and
the manpages are not available from the Google results.

Yes, the mailing list archive and the issues DB are not indexed by
google, and it's a sad thing :(

And this is why:

Has anyone ever done a google search for gridengine information and
actually got a link to an archived gridengine.sunsource.net mailing
list message back as a result?  I don't think the mailing list
archives are indexed by search engines, even those that have  crawled
most if not all of the other parts of the gridengine.sunsource.net
site.  Since the mailing lists are a primary support route for many
people it seems that it would be beneficial for the list archives to
be externally indexed.  I was thinking about setting up an automatic
list traffic archive using something simple like mailman/pipermail
which can be crawled easily but it does not seem worth it unless
somehow I could incorporate all the past list messages as well.
Anyone have a list archive handy in accessible form?  Is this even an
issue? Maybe its just me.
