Subject proxy and URL munging
Date Wed, 26 May 2004 14:23:30 GMT
Hi all,

There have been a number of outstanding bug reports on proxy concerning 
mod_proxy and URLs that have %xx escaping in them.

For proxy's internal use, it would need to remove the escaping of the 
URL so that a request for http://whatever/%65 and a request for 
http://whatever/A would be interpreted as the same thing.

But - for actually fetching the downstream URL, the proxy should in 
theory send the URL unchanged as it was delivered in all it's escaped 
glory from the client.

Is my thinking on this correct? Is there a reason why proxy might not 
want to send the raw URL as is to a downstream server?
