I agree for the website. But for the wiki, we need some fixes too and 
we're not going to replace the wiki by a 'Web App'.

So whatever we can do to improve the pages (as stated in those threads) we 
should do as soon as possible.

I noticed a lot of other centos website are being created by people to 
fill in the void there is because our wiki simply sucks from a Google 
point of view:


Try anything:

 	centos wireless
 	centos hardware
 	centos laptop
 	centos x200s

The last ones are really to cry for because lots of these results do have 
a link to our wiki, but the wiki is simply missing from the first 100 

Even searching for:

 	x200s site:wiki.centos.org

results not in the page I was hoping for. As if the wiki (or at least 
big parts of it) is simply ignored by Google.

We have a robots.txt that has nothing really in it. From what I can find, 
an empty robots.txt should have the same effect as no robots.txt, but ours 
is not exactly empty in the true meaning of the word. So maybe we should 
empty it, or simply remove it altogether ?

PS The wiki does seem to be indexed, so I doubt it is the robots.txt
