Subject Re: Apache Y2K bug in mod_usertrack.c
Date Wed, 01 Jul 1998 09:32:41 GMT
The latest draft available on this appears to be
draft-ietf-http-state-man-mec-09, which was just released a
fortnight ago.  From the summary:

"The method described here differs from Netscape's Cookie proposal
[Netscape], but it can interoperate with HTTP/1.0 user agents that
use Netscape's method."

Of course, RFC2109 contains much the same text, and finesses the
issue by using a delta-seconds Max-Age parameter rather than an
Expires one.

Under the circs, perhaps mod_usertrack should be recoded to
comply with 2109 rather than the Netscape proposal.  (I don't
think it does now.)  The draft named above is intended to replace
2109, but both are certainly newer than the old Netscape proposal.
