Description Paul Lindner 2000-07-13 20:24:45 UTC
Many parts of the redhat.com don't work when cookies are disabled.

This can be fixed by enabling some options in Apache::ASP.

Some testing should be done to fix the cookieless behavior.

Comment 1 Tom Lancaster 2001-04-09 23:19:32 UTC
I think we can and should do this by sniffing for cookies, and enabling
cookieless sessions for users without.

Comment 2 Tom Lancaster 2001-04-25 00:18:37 UTC
Apache::ASP supports this. One caveat is that we need to make sure all external
redirects ( off-site ) get scrubbed of session id on the way out.

Comment 3 Tom Lancaster 2001-04-25 22:27:38 UTC
Activated on webdevel. Only affects local urls, so scrubbing shouldn't be an
issue. Need to see whether form-based redirects preserve session-id.

Comment 4 Tom Lancaster 2001-05-21 22:37:11 UTC
Bah. I think this one will not be possible anytime soon, as it would require
great coordination with Interchange and other parts of the site.
Changing priority and severity downwards.

Comment 5 Jay Turner 2001-09-17 18:58:30 UTC
Closing out this issue, as I don't see any way/reason to go cookieless at this
