Subject AuthBasicAuthoritative but no AuthDigestAuthoritative
Date Sat, 17 May 2008 14:52:33 GMT
I was looking at mod_auth_basic.c and mod_auth_digest.c in both 2.2 and
trunk to try and see whether there was any reason why there is an
AuthBasicAuthoritative directive, but no AuthDigestAuthoritative.  I was
expecting the code in authenticate_basic_user and
authenticate_digest_user to be similar in its error handling, which they
sort of are, but mod_auth_basic will return DECLINED if auth_result is
neither AUTH_GRANTED nor AUTH_DENIED and authoritative is set.

Is this difference in module behaviour intentional or just due to the
modules developing independently?
