  • Ticket #15642 – Description

    initial v1  
    1 Currently, when we set `DirAuthorities` or `AlternateDirAuthority`, we don't add the default directory authorities. But, (as long as `FallbackDir` isn't set) we do add the default fallback directories. However, the list of default fallback directories is currently `NULL`, so this issue has no effect.

    3 But I can't imagine too many scenarios where it would be useful to set an `AlternateDirAuthority` or `DirAuthorities`, and still get the default `FallbackDir`.
     3It doesn't make sense to me to add the default fallback directories when we have custom `DirAuthorities` or `AlternateDirAuthority`. I think we should only add the default fallback directories when other directories are also set to their defaults.

    59I can imagine this causing similar issues to #13163, where the default authorities were added to a custom set of authorities in some circumstances.
