------- Additional Comments From bugs.apache.org@mnot.net  2003-04-21 18:50 -------
To be a bit more verbose - 

mod_autoindex hides directories and files that require authentication, which
leads to a catch-22; how does someone find the file to log in if they can't see
that it exists?

It's very nifty that it can hide authentiated resources *if* the site requires
users to log in earlier; however, this doesn't work in all situations.

Therefore, it's necessary to have an option where this behaviour is turned off.

[changing the severity, as this isn't an enhancement; it's a bug in a 2.0
enhancement ]
