Subject [GitHub] couchdb pull request: Backport Accept check from chttpd
Date Mon, 17 Nov 2014 09:39:42 GMT
Github user olafura commented on the pull request:
    Sorry I tend to complicate things with explanations :)
    It's really simple, this patch is a rollback because bug. It also brings the 1.x.x series
in line with what's in 2.0
    This bug is one of the first ones I hit many years ago when I started using Couchdb, at
the time I didn't know it was a bug. Just a really strange behavior, which I think is the
case with most people. Futon and Fauxton have workarounds for this buggy behavior. People
are using require_valid_user unnecessarily because of this with all it's Basic Authentication
mess, having to close the browser to log out etc, and not being able to mix and match closed
and open databases.
    It's just a couple of lines of code that will make Couchdb much better and Couchapp are
a lot better, just try it. Apply read protection on a database and visit it with this patch.
