Subject Re: authz / authn and mod_auth_ldap
Date Fri, 17 Jan 2003 18:43:51 GMT

I read the discussion for few messages, i am not an apache developper, 
so i will speak as a user. IMHO, Splitting into two modules will make 
auth more complex. actually, it's not really easy to setup, and the 
documentation is not always up to date.
