The directive "ReadmeName README" is supposed to print the file 'README' at
the end of a directory listing. However, this doesn't work.
Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-10-20 17:43:10 EDT
Apparently this changed in 1.3.6.  Unless you have the mod_mime_magic module
enabled (which is not the case by default), Apache cannot determine the type of
a file named "README", and unless it can determine that its type is
"text/plain", "text/html", or another "text" type, it will ignore it when
generating directory indexes.

Tests show that either enabling the mod_mime_magic module or changing the
ReadmeName to something which can be guessed by mod_mime (like "README.txt")
works, but the core should be assigning the DefaultType ot "text/plain" to it.

Thanks for the report.  This is a mass bug update; since this release
of Red Hat Linux is no longer supported, please either:

a) try and reproduce the bug with a supported version of Red Hat
Enterprise Linux or Fedora Core, and re-open this bug as appropriate
after changing the Product field, or,

b) if relevant, try and reproduce this bug using the current version
of the upstream package, and report the bug upstream.
