Is your feature request related to a problem? A clear and concise description of what the problem is.

Client get frustrated that we don't have a simple way to generate an .xml sitemap for Decidim websites. It's recommended for SEO.

Describe the solution you'd like

On a multi-tenant Decidim instance I may not want to generate a sitemap for all orgs as some maybe used for private purposes (ex: "Force users to authenticate before access organization")

As a system admin, I'd like to have a config flag in /system in the org edit form to choose to generate an .xml sitemap for the org I'm editing.

We could use an existing gem like to generate the site map.

The sitemap generator would need to exclude :

  • /admin and /system links
  • Private spaces links

The sitemap needs to be be

  • frequently updated → a cron job can run periodically
  • and sent to search engines → We need to decide if we leave the responsibility to the admin of the org or if we try to ease up the process a little bit for them. We could use this gem so that the pinging to search engine is automated

Describe alternatives you've considered

At this stage I'm wondering :

  • if this feature could be of interest to the rest of the community. If not we can always make a module;
  • what's the best way to generate a xml sitemap for a Decidim site;

Additional context

Does this issue could impact on users private data?
