Description

In CommonMiddleware, there's a PREPEND_WWW setting, but not one for REMOVE_WWW, which is logical, since www is depreciated.

There's one available in URLMiddleware, or I've provided a patch which adds it to CommonMiddleware, as I think it should be.

Patch adding support for REMOVE_WWW

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

PREPEND_WWW exists to provide a way to create uniform URLs. Adding another setting that does the same thing in a slightly different way is just adding to the settings for no real technical reason. If somebody *really* want to remove www always, they can write their own middleware or use web server rewriting.

The www subdomains are not in any way deprecated, despite what no-www.org might want people to believe, so there is no strong reason to prefer www-stripping to www-adding as far as uniformisation goes.

Alright, the people in the IRC room immediately yelled that www was depreciated, as soon as I mentioned this. So, I took their word for it (plus, I had seen no-www.org before, also).
