Subject Re: [Slightly OT] Apache::AuthCookie and mod_perl version 1.x
Date Mon, 31 Jul 2017 18:27:23 GMT
 From a heavy (indirect) user of Apache2::AuthCookie (and it's 2.4 incantation), first of

all, thanks. And in particular, thank you for the work done to make this compatible with 
the changes in Apache 2.4, despite the paucity of original documentation available.

And I don't speak for everyone, but as far as I am concerned, I would indeed vote for 
retiring the 1.x version code.

Note: I do not really use the released Apache2::AuthCookie as such, having long ago 
derived my own version of it and added multiple alternative things which make it 
unshareable, but I regularly refer to the latest code of Apache2::AuthCookie to keep mine

So again, thanks.
