Description Alex Hochberger 2005-05-22 05:20:23 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X; en) AppleWebKit/312.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Safari/312

Description of problem:
The version included with RHEL is still based upon rc4.5, which has several enhancements, including 
the ability to delegate Basic auth to another module (if you want to take Kerberos tickets, but pass 
along User/Password information to a database or other source).  In addition, I have been working with 
the mod_auth_kerb authors on strange issues with Apple's Safari not working with mod_auth_kerb, and 
having an old version of mod_auth_kerb prevents working on it.

Please continue to update the RHEL support to the newer RCs as the Fedora package is updated.

This plus PHP-XMLRPC is allowing me to upgrade SEVERAL servers to RHEL 4 from RHEL 3 and RH9, 
OpenBSD, etc., making this an extremely useful feature.
