> I modified the example given in the ExternalProcesses wiki page to return exactly the
request line and queried the external process with both a trailing slash (
) and no trailing slash ( ). The request line is exactly
the same for these two cases.
> This is problematic because external processes may treat these cases differently. For
example, Django's CommonMiddleware class redirects any "path" to "path/" if there is a view
at "path/" but not at "path", which is usually the case for a default view of a Django app.
When using Django with couchdb-wsgi, this results in an infinite redirect loop because although
Django issues a redirect to "path/", couchdb-wsgi emits "path" as the path.
