Subject [PATCH]: RFC 2109 & Netscape cookie specs refinements
Date Sun, 15 Dec 2002 16:19:51 GMT
Cookie specs refinement has been prompted by the problem reported by
Christopher Lenz


- Default cookie version is back to 0. My idea to assume that cookies by
default must be treated as fully RFC 2109 compliant was ill-conceived. 

- RFC 2109 CookieSpec class is not better compliant with the
requirements of backward compatibility stated in the section 10
("Historical") of the RFC 2109. The code got uglier though :-(

- Better Netscape draft compliance (for history inclined)

- Minor API refinements

- More test cases

Feedback, critique is welcome
