Description Russell Coker 2004-04-17 11:55:44 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.2; Linux) (KHTML, like Gecko)

Description of problem:
When most people type a URL into their web browser they type in "www.whatever..." not "http://whatever...", people who know how things work know it's three characters less to type, and the people who don't know how things work often don't know that there's any other way to do it.

Having no www.fedora.redhat.com CNAME breaks this.  It will be a convenience to add such a CNAME and I can't think of any disadvantage to doing so.

Good point. I'll look into it and see if we can get this alias setup.

Comment 2 Kambiz Aghaiepour 2004-04-19 16:34:26 UTC
The is reasonable.  The CNAME alias has been setup, and apache vhost
configured to allow for the www.fedora.redhat.com name.
