I think gmane articles do not live forever. So I'm attaching the patches here.

do you still believe in this concept?

it would, while being very technically clean, break some browers that are too
stupid to add the .html on saving (i believe)
Comment 5 Andreas Kuckartz 2005-01-27 17:29:58 UTC
Do we want/need to support such stupid browsers ? I do not think so.

Documenting how to remove/add that feature would be good.

it is not just stupid browsers. if you do a static export, apache uses the file
extension to determine the mime type

same for different language versions. ideally, all of this would be done with
content negotiation, but i have rarely seen that implemented in the wild:

is this still relevant, given that the file suffix has been eliminated in the
backend code already?

IIUC these issues are not related, the bug is about the URL extension.

this one looks ancient. and since the attachments are complete files instead of
diffs, it's hard to figure out what it's about. can anyone clarify and maybe
close this issue?
