Webfacing SVN browser and spam

Hi everyone, 

I just have a quick question about policies. About a week ago someone came on 
here looking to close a bug where by his email was leaked to a webfacing page 
on the KDE website because he was starting to get spam. 

Does KDE have a policy about this sort of stuff? Do we guarantee that there 
will be no web crawler able to access files on the KDE website that will reveal 
email addresses? If this is in fact the case then are there any policies about 
third parties circumventing this defence? There is a file accessible here 
http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/KDE/kdeedu/marble/todo.ics?view=markup that is 
publicly available for everyone to see which contains my ( other ) email 
address and a quick google search shows that that it isn't indexed by google 
at least. My email address is however Indexed by google at a site 
https://svn.vidalia-project.net/svn/marble/trunk/todo.ics which hosts the KDE 
SVN tree for marble. 

I just want to know what people's opinions on this is. 

Thanks for your time, and i'm sorry if its a stupid question,
