SVN 6774, added locale to sample htaccess file MW

Why don't we ship real .htaccess files for these directories or make a script to install them?

This would avoid someone exposing their SVN installation and thus perhaps encourage testers.

duh, memory like a colander. I did this ages ago. See tools/fixHtaccess.pl .


umm, thanks for making that Martin, I'll use it. tools isn't part of the distribution though. MW

twiki$ svn commit -m "Item584: Better, incorporates both scripts on http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Codev/FixUpHtaccess and works with new style bin/.htaccess.txt. Please feel free to add to it. Will be a CommandSet" tools/fixHtaccess.pl

Sending tools/fixHtaccess.pl Transmitting file data . Committed revision 6785.


for Dakar we don't have a good resolution to this - next release we should start having deployment specific contributions (having .htaccess files in the release is bad - most apache setups should not use them as it slows apache down, and for non-apache it doesn't apply at all

so - deffering -- SD

I've moved this in parallel with pseudo-install for plugins. Its now called pseudo-install-twiki.pl

Someone might like to make the installation of .htaccess files optional.


Undeferred, post Dakar CC

I'm with Sven on this, shipping .htaccess files in the release is bad. But I go one step further, and discard.


Summary Why not ship the means to make .htaccess files? Or have them in SVN?
