No

With about 70,000 people in a gedcom I found in the Goggle webmaster tools stating an error, that the file size of the XML sitemap exceeds the allowed size and suggests to separate in more than one file. The file is ignored by google.

I think this is something that should be handled by the sitemap generation.

Thanks,
Veit

    This isn't a bug.

    If you want to change the way the sitemap module works you should make a request in the feature request tracker.

    I don't think, that compliance to the protocol standard (http://www.sitemaps.org/protocol.php) is a Feature Request.

    The sitemap protocol standard states:
    You can provide multiple Sitemap files, but each Sitemap file that you provide must have no more than 50,000 URLs and must be no larger than 10MB (10,485,760 bytes). If you would like, you may compress your Sitemap files using gzip to reduce your bandwidth requirement; however the sitemap file once uncompressed must be no larger than 10MB. If you want to list more than 50,000 URLs, you must create multiple Sitemap files.
