HTTP Digest Authentication Bug [May. 20th, 2009|11:05 am]
LiveJournal Development


[Tags|, ]

As documented on: http://community.livejournal.com/lj_dev/693080.html and the corresponding lj request http://www.livejournal.com/support/see_request.bml?id=536849 , there's a bug in the way the digest authentication works on livejournal, which occurs when trying to load syndicated pages with authentication.

The fix seems to be quite simple, as far as I understand it, but the request is currently closed.

Given it's been about 3 and a half years, how can a user (such as myself) work around this problem, and/or see the status of this bug fix request is?

livejournal changeset 15182: deleting all attributes for which tags? [May. 20th, 2009|10:18 pm]

I've been staring for a while at livejournal changeset r15182: LJSUP-4312, trying to figure out what it does and (more importantly) why. Apparently, it rewrites some tags so that <foo bar="quux"> becomes <foo>, but I'm not sure which. (It looks like most tags exempt from this rewriting are the lj* tags, but surely there has to be others, such as <a href=...">. Anyone has an idea?
