Subject Re: [PATCH] ServerTokens Directive (replace AddVersionPlatform)
Date Mon, 11 May 1998 21:06:06 GMT
There is nothing wrong with leaving out the Server: header entirely, and I
wouldn't object to giving the user a way to disable it.  We should,
however, strongly discourage any such thing in the docs and warn people
that it doesn't stop people from taking a pretty good guess at the
software running from other behaviour.
