           Summary: Order doc can be misinterpreted
           Product: Apache httpd-2.0
           Version: 2.0.50
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: Documentation
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: clock@twibright.com


"Deny,Allow
    The Deny directives are evaluated before the Allow directives. Access is
allowed by default. Any client which does not match a Deny directive or does
match an Allow directive will be allowed access to the server."

When I read this I thought it means that the things that are evaluated first
take precendence (it appears natural to me).

However when I read it second time I also analyzed the exampled and reverse
engineered from them that it's the other way.

Simply said, the doc (the non-example part) shouldn't discuss any orders at all.
User isn't interested in any orders in whatever is processed in. User is
interested in the ourtcome.

Suggested fix: replace that philosophical elaborate with a 2x2 table (hits a
deny directive, doesn't hit a deny directive) x (hits an allow directive x
doesn't hit any allow directive) with entries "allowed" and "denied". Obey the
KIDS rule, kids. Keep It Dead Simple.
