Just a random note about warnings. I have a script which is run in
response to web visitors, and as a result, I get hundreds of warnings
in apache's log of this form:
[Tue Aug 18 20:20:07 2009] [error] [client ...IP...] Not trusting file
/data/mxr-data/mozilla-central/mozilla-central/.hg/hgrc from untrusted
user timeless, group www-data

fwiw, the contents of that file are:
default = http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central

1. I'm glad it isn't shown to my users
2. It hasn't helped me fix anything since I have no idea what's
triggering it or what it means
3. It's merely wasting potentially megabytes of space in log files
4. spurious warnings are annoying (i consider the one that's flooding
my logs spurious)
