Subject svn commit: r832952 - in /httpd/httpd/trunk/docs/manual/rewrite: rewrite_guide.html.en rewrite_guide.xml
Date Thu, 05 Nov 2009 01:16:47 GMT
Author: rbowen
Date: Thu Nov  5 01:16:47 2009
New Revision: 832952

URL: http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?rev=832952&view=rev
Log:
Removing this rule entirely, because it's not meaningful. It relies on
REMOTE_IDENT. Browsers stopped sending REMOTE_IDENT 15 years ago, and
even when they did, it wasn't trustworthy.
