Description Sebastian Pipping gentoo-dev 2015-03-26 16:03:06 UTC

File files/postinstall-en-1.9.4.txt used by moinmoin-1.9.7-r1.ebuild currently reads:

  1. ExecCGI needs to be enabled in your Moinmoin directory by doing:
  # echo "Options ExecCGI" > ${MY_INSTALLDIR}/.htaccess
  # echo "AddHandler cgi-script .cgi" >> ${MY_INSTALLDIR}/.htaccess

Since the use of AddHandler is a security threat, I would ask you to change that into a solution based on SetHandler, instead.  Please check

for an example.

Many thanks!
