Subject Re: [PATCH] to fix mod_userdir's broken handling of ///~user
Date Thu, 03 Jul 1997 19:05:22 GMT

Let me clarify my veto.  I believe it is a Good Thing to fight URL
variance.  URL variance is when two or more URLs point at the same
resource.  This causes proxy caches and local caches to expand needlessly,
and search engines to return multiple references to the same page.  In my
opinion we're pretty liberal on this already, what with Unix-style
collapsing of multiple ///, but I understand the need for that for
backwards compatibility.
