Markus Schuch commented on CONNECTORS-1392:
-------------------------------------------

[~kwright@metacarta.com] i edited the description to match your recommendations.

I removed the references to the {{<a ... rel="nofollow" ...>}} attributes, because i
found no evidence in the code, that we respect them right now.
Please correct me if i am wrong.

> The Web connectors already allows to ignore robots.txt by option.
> With this ticket, another option is added, to allow the connector to ignore robots instructions
in {{<meta name="robots ...}} tags.
> *Proposal (to be discussed)*
> Add a new option list "Page level robots instructions" to the "Robots" Tab. List entries:
> # Obey meta robots tags (the default)
> # Don't took at meta robots tags
> The end user doc needs to be updated.
> Google ressources on robot instructions in HTML pages:
