The above robots.txt may not be appropriate for production it was a quick hack to preserve the ressources of the test-system which has only a low bandwidth connection at the moment.

If indexing of the main site is on purpose we should supply an explicit robots.txt with allowance so it's documented.

We should not stop crawling for the production system, we should limit it properly. The above mentionened robots.txt is not adequat.
