The official Google Webmaster blog announces Code Search Sitemaps. The Google Code Search team now enables you to create Sitemaps that contain information about public source code you host and would like to include in Code Search.

“There's more information about this new functionality on the Google Code blog. If you're eager to get going, take a look at our Help Center documentation, create a Code Search Sitemap, sign into Google Webmaster Tools, and submit a Sitemap for Code Search!”

"Google's Code Search helps users find function definitions and sample code by enabling them to search publicly accessible source code hosted on the Internet. You can tell Google about source code on your site by creating and submitting a Code Search Sitemap. A Code Search Sitemap is just like a regular Sitemap, and is submitted in the same way, but it does include some additional, Code Search-specific information. Because of this, we don't recommend using the Sitemap Generator to create Code Search Sitemaps."

“To get started, check out the new Code Search tags for itemaps. For complete software packages that are archives (.tar, .tar.gz, .tar.bz2, or .zip), you can create a packagemap file to describe all the individual code files in each package. For example:

xmlns:codesearch="http://www.google.com/codesearch/schemas/sitemap/1.0">

http://example.com/download/myfile.c

C

LGPL

http://example.com/download/myproject.tgz

archive

Apache

packagemap.xml

Once you've created your Sitemap, post it to a public URL on your site and then be sure to submit it through Google Webmaster Tools.”
