Problems with Digest HTTP authentication

The xmlrpclib.ServerProxy client - as demonstrated in the following examples - will not work with a Digest-based HTTP authentication: you need to set up a Basic HTTP authentication on server side to make the examples work.

If you use the standalone Trac daemon, this means that you cannot use the tracd -a option (htdigest authentication file). Use trac --basic-auth (htpasswd authentication file) instead.

So, the information is in the documentation (wiki)? I don't quite understand what you want me to with this ticket? Anything wrong? Anything needing improvement?
