Subject Disabling auth
Date Wed, 20 Jan 1999 09:20:05 GMT
If you have

	Docroot /somewhere
	<Directory /somewhere/xxx>
	AuthType Basic
	require valid-user
But then wish to map out a single file or URL from that
protected space, i.e. with something like

	<Location /test.xx>

	<File /somewhere/test.xx>

There seems to be no way to switch off the 'Auth' required 'valid-user' you 
defined in the directory setting. Obviously you can use Rewrite or Alias to
map it to some other directory tree, but I could not see a clean way to switch
auth off.

Am I way wrong and missing something ? Before I race off and implement a
patch to do either 'AuthType NONE' or add a no-require directive.
