Description David Mulford 2019-03-22 18:55:18 UTC
mod_auth_mellon-0.14.0-2.el7 forces a prefix of 'MELLON_' for all environment variables.  It would be nice to change the prefix in the config file from 'MELLON_' to something else to make migrating from another Service Provider easier.

Using MellonSetEnvNoPrefix is a workaround, but with a few dozen environment variables set by the identity provider this is a very tedious process.
