OK, this may seem odd, but I've started using trac 3 days ago and spent a lot of time setting up everything, learning pythonm etc.

The biggest problem I've faced while doing this was to find relevant litterature to help me in all those procedure concerning trac configuration/plugin setup/etc.

In fact, while I was google-ing key words, most of the proposed links were actually the wiki page of installed trac websites containing exactly the same content as the main site…

I wanted to point that out, as a noob into the trac country. Information is Hard to find as it is always the same. Finding websites with different explanation is try-and-error trial.

I'm not sure how this could be corrected.. Maybe a "listener" for robots, a (don't remember how it's spelled) "don't follow these links" for the wiki stuff unless page is changed by the websites users…

We could add ref="nofollow" on the help links, yes.

See also #5177. I don't think anymore that "nofollow" was such a good idea.

Some wiki namespaces (e.g. Help:, see #3386) could be marked as non indexable and send "NOINDEX" (#478).
