quick but resource-heavy fix (95 bytes, patch)
2007-09-13 03:06 UTC, Alexander

Description Alexander 2007-09-13 02:49:36 UTC
maintenance/generateSitemaps.php script includes redirect pages in the sitemaps it generates, but from a SEO standpoint they should not be included.

quick but resource-heavy fix

This appears to work, but is incredibly time-consuming; it creates a new Article object for every title.
Comment 2 Alexander 2007-09-13 06:48:11 UTC
quick little benchmark for the patch, running on for 2578 URLs:

before patch: running time < 10 sec
after patch: running time = 17 minutes

Redirects need to appear for proper indexing.
