Subject Auth - what should happen
Date Thu, 11 Jul 2002 13:40:16 GMT

Opinions - not on what happens to day in 1.3 but what should happen in a
perfect world:

Given a config like this:

	<Directory /my/secrets>
	AuthType 	basic
	AuthName	Restricted area
	</Directory>

What should happen ? Allowed in with, or without a password ? What would
users feel as most logical ?

Then
	<Directory /my/secrets>
	AuthType 	basic
	AuthName	Restricted area
	<Limit POST>
		require valid-user
	</Limit>
	</Directory>

Same here when using a GET. (Note - I've not even started with 'allow
from' or 'satisfy any complexity).

Thanks,

Dw
