I thought robots.txt can exclude subdirs. So just cut off (say)
svn-haxx.apache.org/mbox/

I'm not too worried about Google crawling the mboxes, as they'll likely do
it just once and never again (by keeping the etag and/or mtime).

Correct: committers only. And only after linking accounts via
https://gitbox.apache.org/setup/ as Nathan noted (and we forgot to mention
to DSahlberg).

If you do not have a GitHub account, or do not want one (say, because you
don't want to accept their T&Cs), then you can use the repository via
gitbox.apache.org (ask on Slack for the link; I prefer not to post it here).
