RE: logout and cosign.cgi question
I think the cgi-bin/logout with script alias works well, but I am just
thinking from an installation point of view.
I would like to see CoSign much easier is intall, and this what I am trying
to for the UoA as a first step to putting CoSign into production here. So
from my point of view, the least amount of changes needed to the httpd.cond
and ssl.conf etc etc would be the best, as long as it is (of course) reason
to have this. Although I am looking at perhaps writing something so the make
process and alter the httpd.conf etc appropriately for the basic
configurations and then is can be tweaked if needed. Thoughts?
I am also in the process of making the configure script a little more
consistent (eg --enable-apache2 and --with-apache-apxs) and configurable
based on the prefix etc...
I am also thinking of bringing the IISCosign source in the filters directory
and alter the common code (in the common directory and libsnet) to compile
on both win32 and linux. I think this makes for a cleaner development
What are your thoughts?
Please do not take my suggestions as criticism :) These are things I want to
do and I would like my work to useful to the wider community also, so
suggestions would be good :)

Subject: Re: logout and cosign.cgi question
We install logout in a cgi-bin directory using a ScriptAlias -- so it
doesn't need an extension. We install the login cgi in DocumentRoot
with ExecCGI turned on -- so we use the .cgi extension there. Lot's of
our users already knew that appending "/cgi-bin/logout" to the end of a
url would cause logout to happen, so we wanted to preserve that
There's not much more to it than that. Do you think it would make more
sense to move the logout cgi into DocumentRoot/logout/index.cgi or
similar? So a ScriptAlias isn't needed?
