I haven't heard of this customization to MG. And judging by the lack of
response to this email, no one else has either.
Does the website you mention provide the source code for the
modification? (which web site was it?)

Greenstone is not set up to send feed back to an indexer. You may be
able to implement it, but its not there at the moment.
