If sphinx accesses the wiki's backend DB as Kevin indicated, it
unlikely pages would be hidden from searching simply because they're
not linked. Only testing will tell for sure. On the other hand, if
that's the only way it works then I'm not sure how it could digest
docs.fp.o which has no similar DB.
Yeah, thats the hard part of using sphinx. You can pass it data thats
not from a database in a xml format, but someone would have to create
the script that scrapes this data, puts it in the right xml format and
feeds it to sphinx.
So, thats not likely as easy as xiapan and it's crawler, but on the
other hand it's very easy for the wiki.
