Subject AllowOverride list is incomplete
Date Tue, 19 Jul 2011 23:59:06 GMT
Hello, folks;
   I wanted to plant a bug in everyone's ear about an issue I came
across. I'll open a formal bug and a final list of what is and is not
allowed when time permits. I have found that the documentation (example:
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/trunk/mod/core.html#allowoverride) provides
an incomplete list of directives permitted by the four AllowOverride
options.


The bug I wanted to plant is to get opinions/thoughts on...
   *How should this be organized and presented? I can foresee that this
could get "cluttery" for AllowOverride documentation.
   *Should we try to document all directives? As things are
added/removed the list could get out of sync easily.
   *I think it's a good idea to ad a note that the AllowOverride
documentation can't possibly cover directives for 3rd party modules that
have overrides.
   *Maybe The Right Thing to do is to implement something in mod_info
that will show the overrides and point documentation there?



As an example and why I brought this up:
23 directives are called out in the documentation for AllowOverride
FileInfo, but in my research, I found these 45 directives outside of
core and in the modules directory.
