Subject Re: svn commit: r1736683 - /httpd/httpd/trunk/docs/manual/mod/mod_authnz_ldap.xml
Date Sat, 26 Mar 2016 17:27:25 GMT
As far as I've seen, directive names used within the corresponding 
<directivesynopsis> bloc do not have a link to themselves.
That's why I have removed some in this commit.

In the same commit, I've also added some missing module= for some other 
directives in order to keep the link to them.

As an example, in this commit, you can find:

+    <directive>AuthLDAPSubGroupAttribute</directive> directive identifies the
+    labels of group members and the <directive module="mod_authnz_ldap"
+    >AuthLDAPGroupAttribute</directive>

No module= for AuthLDAPSubGroupAttribute but one for 
AuthLDAPGroupAttribute, because we are in the AuthLDAPSubGroupAttribute 
<directivesynopsis> bloc.

I've never seen this "rule" written anywhere, but it looks a quite 
classical way to do within the online doc.
I personally find it logical and it helps, IMHO, to quickly see if the 
explanation we are reading it about the current directive or if it is 
related to something else, which can be found somewhere else.

If module= everywhere is the preferred way, that's good for me and will 
update accordingly.

BTW, I will backport port these changes during the WE but I'm in the 
process to synch 2.4 and trunk for this given file. Started but not 
finished yet.
