As mentioned in this tweet:


In one place, the mod_authnz_ldap docs say don't use quotes, and a few paragraphs later, they say to use quotes.

We need to be consistent across all of the docs regarding the use of quotes - ie. use when there's spaces, and otherwise it's by preference. Unless a particular directive *requires* spaces?

Little addition: I found out the hard way that the advice for `Require ldap-group` is indeed necessary; wrapping it in quotes does not work. I don't understand why though, since it seems that other configuration directives can be safely wrapped in quotes, or even should be if they contain spaces. Maybe the docs can detail why this is an exception.
