A good idea, but we're actually not (yet) letting Google or other
robots-abiding crawlers index our repositories on git.openstack.org
until https://review.openstack.org/427959 or something like it

At the moment we maintain a specialized search engine for source
code at http://codesearch.openstack.org/ which is a bit more
empowering than basic Web content searches, and it might be a good
idea to see if we can better integrate that in the places where
people see a need for it.

Always appreciated!
