    5 The sitemap_gen.py script analyzes your web server and generates one or more
    6 Sitemap files.  These files are XML listings of content you make available on
    7 your web server.  The files can be directly submitted to search engines as
    8 hints for the search engine web crawlers as they index your web site.  This
    9 can result in better coverage of your web content in search engine indices,
   10 and less of your bandwidth spent doing it.

   12 The sitemap_gen.py script is written in Python and released to the open
   13 source community for continuous improvements under the BSD 2.0 new license,
   14 which can be found at:

   23 The minimum Python version required is Python 2.2.  However, if URLs on
   24 your site involve any non-ASCII characters, we strongly recommend
   25 Python 2.3 or later, as it better handles encoding issues.
