Subject Re: Requests to server-status result in two calls to stat().
Date Sun, 08 Apr 2001 01:18:10 GMT
I'm working this weekend on nothing but finishing the win32 apr_filepath_
calls and renaming the apr_optional symbols to fit how DougM has restructured
the rest of APR.  Once that change is in, we will kill canoncical conversions
in AP_ and move the last bits to APR_, bypassing stats entirely if you set
AllowOverrides None.  When you do need a stat, it won't stat anything up the
chain of DocumentRoot, but take DocumentRoot as gospel (if that change hadn't 
happened already.)

My final theory on this... if the <Directory /foo/bar> is specified (or has
been cached) and already canoncialized to /foo/bar (it's the exact name) and
the user requests /foo/bar, then no stats.  If the user types /Foo/Bar, then
we have stats, and then we introduce the choice of serving as /Foo/Bar, or
redirecting to /foo/bar. 

The only performance seriously hurt will be the users who insist on creating
the /foo/bar path and then leave all their <IMG SRC> or <A HREF> tags pointing
at /Foo/Bar, and that can be documented.
