Bug Description

The branch below contains a new AccessHandler module intended for a more patron-friendly (OPAC auth instead of basic auth) protection for content and Apache features.

I have included documentation on use of the module, including a quick "how to use it to protect an Apache proxy" example, in both "Release Notes" form and in TechRef. The two copies should currently be identical other than heading levels. I would not object to the Release Notes version being reduced (perhaps pulling the example proxy config out entirely?).;a=shortlog;h=refs/heads/user/tsbere/AccessHandler

This looks good, though I haven't tested it.

My only comment at this point is that there is a pre-existing pattern to use space-separated lists, instead of comma-separated, in O::W::Proxy and ::Proxy::Authen. I think it would be preferable to follow that pattern to reduce admin confusion.

Thanks, Thomas.

Thanks for the comment, I have pushed a bugfix that includes allowing commas and spaces on the lists, allowing admins to use either (or both, really).

I've run it through its pace and looks good to me, so I've pushed it to master, along with a minor tweak of the documentation to reflect the change allowing space-delimited option lists.

Thanks, Thomas!

I pushed a commit that moves the docs from TechRef into the main docs folder and incorporates them into the "System Configuration and Customization" section of the docs. Thanks Thomas!
