Subject Re: Bad choice of directory names for info- & status-modules
Date Thu, 25 Jul 1996 19:43:02 GMT

Okay, I have now modifed the documentation in mod_info.c and mod_status.c,
and the dist access.conf, to go to "server-status" and "server-info".  Why
not "apache-info"?  I thought about how much I'd detest it if Netscape
recommended people use "netscape-status" for an equivalent function. :)
