Subject [jira] Commented: (INFRA-887) Do not allow webservers to server .svn URLs
Date Wed, 12 Jul 2006 16:07:30 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-887?page=comments#action_12420659 ] 

Joe Schaefer commented on INFRA-887:

Oops, I incorrectly thought that members who
request a shell access to a box are entitled to it,
but I'm told that's not the case.

The problem with resolving this issue right now
on ajax is that any solution I can think of will impose
a penalty on all requests (probably a pattern match),
and will make the load problem on ajax worse than
it already is.  We only get about 100 or so requests
per day to .svn dirs, whereas we get 6M regular ones.

In my opinion, the risk of additional load isn't worth
the reward of blocking a few stray requests.  Let's
revisit this issue when the websites are running on
better hardware.

> Bad. Please add a rule to the global http configuration that forbids serving /.svn/ URLs.
