             Bug #: 52821
           Summary: adapt behaviour of SSLProtocol to that of other
                    options directives (or clarify documentation)
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.5-HEAD
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: mod_ssl
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: calestyo@scientia.net
    Classification: Unclassified


Hi.

As noted in bug #52703 comment #10, the parsing of SSLProtocol is different
from similar directives like (Options or SSLOptions).

In the later two, the +/- are only used to control the merging between several
_directives_ (not their parameters), e.g. like this:

Example A:
Options foo bar
Options baz
=> yields in baz

Example B:
Options foo bar
Options +baz
=> yields in foo bar baz

Example C:
Options foo bar
=> yields in foo bar


But for SSLProtocol, this seems to be different:
SSLProtocol foo bar
=> yields JUST in bar


I guess most users will see the "+/-" in the documentation and believe in good
faith, that the behaviour is the same.

So could this either be adapted (IMHO the preferred solution, thus the report
against mod_ssl) or at least be clarified in the documentation.

Thanks,
Chris.
