hey all,

So this file:
 okfn at knowledgeforge:~/svn-okfn/trunk/etc/apache2/okfn.org.extra

Contains this rewrite:
 RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/files/.*$
 RewriteEngine  on
 RewriteRule    ^(.*)\.html$  $1/  [R]

That's breaking non-moin-generated pages.

I changed it to 
 RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/(files|geo)/.*$

But this is a shit fix, and furthermore didn't go the whole hog and
restart Apache because i was reluctant to break the world by futzing
with this:

 okfn at knowledgeforge:~/svn-okfn/trunk/etc/apache2$ /usr/sbin/apache2ctl graceful
 Syntax error on line 4 of /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/fastcgi.conf:
 FastCgiIpcDir /var/lib/apache2/fastcgi: access for server (uid 1002, gid 1002) failed: write not allowed

I would be happy enough to have a geo.okfn.org and redirect
okfn.org/geo so we dont have to slow apache down with more regexen.

hth, zx
