Package: guile-www
Version: 1.1.1-1

HTTP-REFERER, and others, should be provided by guile-www.

HTTP-REFERER is often used and is interesting to a script. It is a "should" in the RFC. Other values starting with HTTP are also "should".

REQUEST-URI is useful in reconstructing the original request URI, and I would like to see it provided. It does not appear to be required/implied/should by the RFC.

The RFC 3875 (cgi v1.1) seems to indicate that most of the client-sent headers should be available:

    "The server SHOULD set meta-variables specific to the protocol and
    scheme for the request."

    "Meta-variables with names beginning with "HTTP_" contain values
    read from the client request header fields...."

    "The server is not required to create meta-variables for all the
   header fields that it receives.  In particular, it SHOULD remove any
   header fields carrying authentication information...."

   [RFC 3875, sec 4.1.18] e.g. http://www.faqs.org/rfcs/rfc3875.html

The guile-www package has been removed from Debian testing, unstable and
experimental, so I am now closing the bugs that were still opened
against it.

For more information about this package's removal, read
http://bugs.debian.org/354746 . That bug might give the reasons why
this package was removed, and suggestions of possible replacements.

Don't hesitate to reply to this mail if you have any question.

Thank you for your contribution to Debian.
