Subject Re: [PATCH] Second try: External Apache tutorials and mod/index.htmlreorg
Date Wed, 23 Aug 2000 16:38:41 GMT

The patch to htdocs/manual/mod/index.html, although useful in its own right,
eliminates a useful index of modules sorted by module name.

I recommend not accepting that patch as is.
