             Bug #: 52439
           Summary: It should be possible to treat errors in .htaccess as

           Version: 2.5-HEAD

          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: Core
    Classification: Unclassified

files packaged with some-application, which might cause unnecessary errors due
to conflict with AllowOverride settings, or more rarely a directive from a
