Release Management

I can see that I need to do something about the get_enclosures release management. Yesterday the 0.2 version was downloaded 50 times, while the 0.3 was downloaded 11 times. That’s not good, so I really need to do something ASAP. I guess in the short term, I’ll just remove the links to old versions and make them point to the new one, but I don’t want to have to update every old post every time I release one. Someone suggested that I just link to a release directory rather than to individual files, which is a good idea. My problem is that at the top level I have my Apache setup configured via .htaccess to serve the weblog page as the index. Does anyone know how to override that at a lower level? I want to have a subdirectory not serve that out, instead giving a directory listing. I looked at the Apache docs last night, seeing how I could turn that off or make the DirectoryIndex directive in my .htaccess file not recurse, and couldn’t figure it out.

    Can’t you just put an .htaccess file in the subdirectory to override the problematic setting that’s recursing down? Sorry if I’m misunderstanding the problem …

    Option -Indexes

    I think that is what you want. That will turn off the directory indexing. You can also simply turn that off in the apache config, and then put

    Option Indexes

    into a .htaccess file in the directory you want indexed.
