Subject Re: [PATCH 1.3] Proxied Server:/Date: headers
Date Tue, 01 Jun 2004 17:07:12 GMT
Still hoping for some feedback.  Note that this proposal affects anyone
who tries to implement a proxy feed from CGI, modperl, tomcat, php,
or any other interesting mechanism, where the user can't manipulate
the r->proxyreq flag :)
