Subject [jira] Commented: (INFRA-1438) Cookie handling causes problems for IE and Opera
Date Mon, 14 Jan 2008 23:17:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-1438?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12558839#action_12558839

Paul Querna commented on INFRA-1438:

This really sounds like a bug in MoinMoin that should be taken upstream to them?

>             Project: Infrastructure

>            Priority: Minor
> The ASF wikis often have a common prefix, eg
> jakarta
> jakarta-commons
> jakarta-jmeter
> I've found that if one logs into jakarta with  IE or Opera, it's then impossible to login
to jakarta-xxx - this seems to be because those browsers match the prefix when deciding to
send the cookie.
> Edit: the problem is that the id from the jakarta cookie is assumed to be the id for
tha jakarta-xxx wiki - the username is ignored (or at least not used to determine the id)
when checking the login password. [Should have made this clear originally, sorry]
> Possible solutions:
> Edit: - ignore cookie when name and password are provided [this should be safe]
> - change cookie to include trailing / [Edit: would still need to deal with slashless
cookies, so perhaps not good]
> I'm not particularly familiar with Python, but I may be able to provide patches ...
