Description Petr Pisar 2013-11-19 09:28:58 EST
0.034 introduced HTTP Basic authentication. Version 0.038 fixed accidential Authorization header rewrite, version 0.037 fixed escaping the credentials. These fixes should be fixed in F20:

0.038     2013-11-18 12:56:26 America/New_York


    - Fixed a bug where authentication parameters in the URL would override
      an existing Authorization header

0.037     2013-10-28 13:26:21 America/New_York


    - Basic authentication in the URL is now unescaped before being encoded
      into the authentication header

    fix basic auth in URL overriding existing auth header
    Basic authorization shouldn't be added if an authorization
    header exists.  The wrong header was being checked and this
    commit fixes that.
