A quick update I just sent to wikitech-l (where this conversation should
be happening):


Full text below:


As you all are aware, git.wikimedia.org (powered by GitBlit) has been
unstable. The root cause is basically that there is insufficient caching
mechanisms in place exacerbated by a lack of robust rules for web
indexers (Google, Bing, etc).

Currently, the solution is to disallow all indexers from indexing
git.wikimedia.org via the robots.txt file
(https://git.wikimedia.org/robots.txt). We hope to open up indexing in a
more controlled fashion soon.

For now, git.wikimedia.org should be stable for everyday use.

You can follow along with the caching developments on bug 49371:

Thanks to Chad and Ariel, especially, who have been working to make sure
this is resolved quickly and permanently.
