http://quickgit.kde.org/robots.txt asks search engines not to index
quickgit at all.

http://projects.kde.org/robots.txt asks search engines not to index the
repository, but the project information, news, etc. should be indexable.
See https://www.google.com/search?q=site:projects.kde.org for stuff that
does get indexed currently.

Both of these blocks were done for server performance reasons: search
engines wer crawling the hell out of dynamically-generated repository
history and bringing our servers to their knees.
