Subject Appeal for help understanding fiendishly complex data structure in mod_authz_core
Date Sun, 19 Mar 2006 15:40:56 GMT
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

mod_authz_core contains a fiendishly complex data structure, the
'authz_provider_list' (which is actually more like a tree than a list),
which is used to implement the concept of nested
<SatisfyOne>/<SatisfyAll> sections.


I've been trying off-and-on for about a week to understand this
structure, and the code that creates and walks it, but have been
unsuccessful.


I'm sending this email as an appeal for assistance understanding this
code, and also as an alert that this code may prove to be a potential
maintenance problem, if it is so difficult to comprehend.

Thanks,
Max.
