10.4: Configure Spotlight to index excluded directories
Authored by: stux on May 12, '05 02:18:13AM
I found a much easier way of editing the _rules.plist was to use the following cmd line
sudo /Developer/Applications/Utilities/Property\ List\ Editor.app/Contents/MacOS/Property\ List\ Editor /.Spotlight-V100/_rules.plist
This of course assumes you have the dev tools installed. It will open the _rules.plist in a su'd Property List editor, then you just add siblings for the INCLUDE element and simply fill in as many paths as you want.

I of course meant "add children" instead of "add siblings"

And using the Property List Editor you can drag and drop folders from the Finder....
