Subject [jira] Commented: (NUTCH-407) Make Nutch crawling parent directories for file protocol configurable
Date Tue, 28 Nov 2006 14:44:22 GMT

Chris A. Mattmann commented on NUTCH-407:

I'm not entirey sure what the right answer to this is. One thing that I do know is that a
colleague at my own work ran into this exact same issue while first attempting to use Nutch
on his enterprise search application. Confused the heck out of him and he ended up including
in the urlfilter-regex what Andrzej mentions above, i.e., only crawl from the top-level down.
He mentioned to me that he thought this was a "kludge" and I can't say that I disagreed with
him. My +1 for figuring  out a better way to solve this problem...
