Some initial questions

Hi all!

I’m very fond of contributing to a public and shared index of crawled websites and Yacy seems a very good project. I still have to check all the requirements to install it.

What I would like to know is:

  • In comparison to Google’s index as a benchmark, how much do you think the share of Yacy is?
  • In average, do you have an estimate of how many sites crawled for each 1GB of space occupied by the index?
  • How’s the vitality of the project, i.e., the user acceptance over time?
  • Aren’t the web crawlers stopped by the web servers?

Thanks.
