Add HTTP Login Functionality to Every Trac Page
This patch allows you to make Trac ask for an http authentication on any Trac page, simply by adding '/login' in front of the path of the page that you would like to request...
This patch was made for Trac version 0.9.6.
To find out more about this patch (and on how to configure your web server to work with it), have a look at http://dawis2.icb.uni-due.de/jpddtools/HttpLoginViaRedirectPatch.html.
If you have any issues, create a new ticket.

If you are asking for the RSS feed of a non-public project, you can call for http://trac.something.com/aproject/login/timeline?...format=rss and you'll be asked to type in your http authentication data (unless you are already logged on) before you'll be (re)directed to the actual RSS feed provided by http://trac.something.com/aproject/timeline?...format=rss...
Works with every other Trac page, as well...
This can be seen as an answer to trac-ticket:540.
