A new line has been added to Google's robots.txt file:

   Disallow: /gcc/

Would lead to -> google.com/gcc/
Does anyone know what this is?

* google.com/robots.txt

Why the heck would they have an online version of gcc ? A free compiling farm for open-source projects ?

Google Closed Circuit ?
Google's China Censorship ?
Google Contacts Center

(...)

I Just wish it would be open-source related though!

Google Cricket Club: video.google.com/videoplay?doc ... :p

/gcc is also on googleadservices.com (Ad-Server-Test):
google.com/ads/gcc_privacy.htm ...
optout.googleadservices.com/gc ...
google.com/ads/gcc_faq.html

And in true Google style, the googleadservices.com domain shares the robots.txt file with google.com:

optout.googleadservices.com/ro ...

So I think that's probably it.

Stupid question, what does GCC mean then if it's that one, Google Cross-site Cookies?

Google Cookies Control?

Because each time you run it, you cross your fingers and fear about compilation errors. :-/

Then, you should blame the code that's being compiled ;-)

GNU Compiler Collection?
Google Candy Controller?
GrandCentral Collaboration?
Good Cookie Control?

This is actually fun...

Tony Ruscoe: that's because they're all the same server, imho. The mail servers are also search servers, are also groups servers etc.... Right?

m1t0s1s, of course Google shares domains and servers across many of its services but I doubt their mail servers are the same ones which host the Google.com home page or index billions of websites.
