in mod/core.html...

- <Location> AND <LocationMatch> BOTH claim in their paragraphs "Note about / (slash)", that consecutive slashes were NOT merged in the regex-version AND the non-regex-version for proxy requests.

to the contrary:
- MergeSlashes (which defaults to ON), claims that multiple slashes would be merged, at least also in the regex-versions (specifically mentioning <LocationMatch> ... and ignoring proxy requests).

What is it now?

Marking this issue as majoir, since the wrong documentation can IMO easily trick people into setting up wrong access controls.
