Hi,

I just wondered if there is a particular reason why the Bugzilla bugs aren't
included in Google search results (robots.txt says disallow /). I guess it means
additional load on the servers, but I also guess that the time saved by avoiding
duplicates would make up for this (most people google for exception messages
when they have a problem, only some people use the bugzilla search, especially
because it's slow and not language-aware).

Greetings,
Ralf


btw: I'm blogging about Eclipse RCP at http://www.ralfebert.de/blog/eclipsercp/
