Comment in session middleware doesn't match behaviour

Description

The comment at the beginning of SessionMiddleware's process_response method says, "If request.session was modified, or if response.session was set, save those changes and set a session cookie."

It says that the sessions changes will be saved and a session cookie will be set if response.session was set, but in the code only request.session is ever checked.

I don't know why the session object would be on the response and not on the request. I'm assuming the comment is simply out of date, but I defer to wiser minds.

  • Needs documentation unset
  • Needs tests unset
  • Patch needs improvement unset

There's a reasonable chance that comment is out of date, since it was part of [518]! (The rest of that method is much newer.)

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

Fixed in [9062].
