Subject merging of AuthMerging?
Date Sat, 22 Dec 2012 18:32:38 GMT
Currently, AuthMerging is unset by default and treated as off.   This
flag is itself not merged.

The default behavior matches the pre-2.4 behavior  -- once you start
typing any kind of host or authz directives in a section, you have a
clean slate.

I was thinking it would be useful if AuthMerging itself was merged
traditionally, such that e.g. this config:

<Files *.bak>
AuthMerging AND
Require all denied
Require ip

... 1000 lines of other unrelated directives

# contrived bad and unnecessary regex
<FilesMatch html>
Require all granted

Would merge AuthMerging AND into the second section -- basically
making the first section "sticky" from below instead of pulling it in
from above.
