Bug Description

Per, some search engine spiders don't support compression of the robots.txt file. I suggest we add robots.txt file to the install.php, update.php and cron.php excludes in our vlc.

Instead use the instruction where the Accept-Encoding is removed:
if (req.url ~ "\.(jpg|png|gif|gz|tgz|bz2|tbz|mp3|ogg)$" || req.url ~ "robots\.txt") {

This was, robots.txt is still cached by varnish but in plain text
