Subject Re: Crawling / Indexation Query

ManifoldCF is not a crawler, it's a synchronizer.  If robots says not to
crawl something, then it will not be indexed.  If robots is changed to
prohibit crawling of certain documents, then yes, those documents will be
removed from the index.

But you can override the robots behavior in the document specification or
configuration, I believe.
