Subject Re: Wiki connector stuck crawling namespaces other than default
Date Wed, 01 Oct 2014 14:20:37 GMT
Hi Kambiz,

I looked deeper into the log, and found that it is looping on trying to
seed.  The reason it is looping is because the wiki server you are crawling
is not honoring the "apfrom" parameter when the namespace is specified.
Please see the following response, which is coming back from the query:

DEBUG 2014-10-01 08:34:22,470 (Thread-618) - http-outgoing-7 >> "GET

This response is *supposed* to start with Africa:Training and go on from
there.  Instead, it seems to be starting from the beginning of the

<?xml version="1.0"?><api><query>

What version of Wiki are you crawling here?  Perhaps something has changed
in the spec, or maybe you are crawling a wiki that is too old to support
this feature?
