Yes that is true but I can't wrap my head around how dns is going to
prevent or cause problems with crawling a site.  My understanding has
been if you submit wiki.centos.org then it is only going to crawl it
via /robots.txt.  However it finding duplicate files so it says is a
problem in it self.  Using the moin site map should just prevent that at
least in theory if it get regenerated.  Of which will happen if you
submit it through bing. Bing can auto pull the site map and every time
that happens it will get regened.  I'm guessing google can still do this

Maybe fill us in on the dns issue effects.
