> If fetcher is following redirects and the max. number of redirects in a redirect chain (http.max.redirect) is reached, fetcher stores a CrawlDatum item with status "fetch_gone" and protocol status "redir_exceeded". During the next CrawlDb update the "gone" item will set the status of existing items (including "db_fetched") with "db_gone". It shouldn't as there has been no fetch of the final redirect target and indeed nothing is know about it's status. An wrong db_gone may then cause that a page gets deleted from the search index.
> There are two possible solutions:
> 1. ignore protocol status "redir_exceeded" during CrawlDb update
> 2. when http.redirect.max is hit the fetcher stores nothing or a redirect status instead of a fetch_gone
> Solution 2. seems easier to implement and it would be possible to make the behavior configurable:
> - store the redirect target as outlink, i.e. same behavior as if http.redirect.max == 0
> - store "fetch_gone" (current behavior)
> - store nothing, i.e. ignore those redirects - this should be the default as it's close to the current behavior without the risk to accidentally set successful fetches to db_gone
