SSLUserName is not usable by other modules





------- Additional Comments From kevin@kevlar.net  2004-10-14 20:35 -------
If you use FakeBasic auth, your username is very long and ugly. Subversion's 
authz_svn module uses the username for logging changes. It really sucks to 
have a log file that is the entire certificate subject.

The reason I filed this is that I was trying to patch Subversion's 
authentication module to allow the use of SSLUserName. I expected that I'd 
only have to ensure that the module was hooked after mod_ssl, but because the 
SSLUserName is only filled in in the fixup hook, that isn't possible.

I'm currently running a server with this patch on it, with the Subversion 
authz_svn module modified to support it as well. This works very well, and is 
much better than FakeBasicAuth. Several people on the Subversion mailing list 
have asked for a feature just like this.
