      Description

      A couple of years ago, https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-361 was marked "fixed", allowing Google to spider the wiki sites.

      However, while searching for some Spamassassin documnetation today, I noticed that virtually no wiki hits were appearing -- especially odd since our documentation and FAQ is primarily wiki-based.

      A check of http://wiki.apache.org/robots.txt reveals the cause:

      User-agent: *
      Disallow: /

      Can this be fixed? We rely on our user population being able to find documentation and FAQs via google. Should we move this from ASF infrastructure if there are persistent load problems?
