Yep, that would be incorrect in your documentation. swish-search is just a
copy of swish-e. I think 2.0.5 is almost a year old, and you are the first
to catch that.
Does anyone use swish-search? I guess it's suppose to be a "safer" version
of swish-e since it can't write index files. Does that imply that swish-e
is not safe?
Frankly, I think it's the CGI's job to validate user data, instead of
leaving some of that to swish-e. I kind of worry that someone will use
swish-search and then be lax on CGI security issues and end up worse off.
Or maybe I worry too much.
