Subject GAE Service abusing public Maven repos
Date Tue, 09 Nov 2010 16:34:00 GMT
We've just discovered a Google App Engine app called pomyard abusing
several repos. Based on the behavior and name of the service, I have
reason to believe they may be attempting to scrape public all maven
repos not just central, ignoring robots.txt. If you have a public
repo, I suggest you block the user agent shown below.
"GET /content/groups/sourceforge/net/sf/microlog/microlog-logger-core/2.2.2/
HTTP/1.1" 499 0 "-" "AppEngine-Google;
(+; appid: pomyard)"
