robots.txt or robots=none metadata would be nice on canned /manual/ directory

           Summary: robots.txt or robots=none metadata would be nice on
                    canned /manual/ directory
           Product: Apache httpd-2.0
           Version: 2.0.47
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Documentation
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: advax@triumf.ca


Many people run Apache without realizing (or forget) and get your installation
text page. It typically contains a link to the documentation, which is
useful for the administrator but if found by a Web robot may chew up
storage and bandwidth to no real purpose (apache.org being a better place
to look than test54.dumbo.org).
It might be useful if the /manual/index.html page included with Apache
had a "meta name=robots content=none" , or perhaps if Apache shipped
with a prototype /robots.txt file.

http://www.robotstxt.org/wc/exclusion.html seems to have reasonable
documentation.
