User-agent: Mediapartners-Google*

User-agent: *
Disallow: /test/

This means we only block the adsense/adwords crawler for google. This
doesn't matter, because we don't have google ads.

And all bots are disallowed to crawl /test/, which doesn't effect the site
crawling at all.


At least 3370 pages index for maemo.org itself. The site is properly
indexed by google.

The writer of that blog post didn't look close enough and made a statement
that was not true.

Our 'internal' search box has problems with garage and lists.m.o. It
searches http://maemo.org just fine.
