Please keep the discussion on the mailing list. If Apache doesn't understand AuthAuthoritative then you aren't using Apache 2.0, but most likely Apache 2.2. For Apache 2.2 it is AuthBasicAuthoritative. This suggests your configuration may be wrong in other ways as Apache 2.2 auth configuration is a bit different due to the addition of auth provider mechanism in 2.2 BTW, the authenhandler() is technically wrong for a lot of reasons and yes I know that means the mod_python documentation is broken. It may work, but only because mod_python does some hacks it shouldn't to catch lazy programmers. :-) I'd really suggest you use auth mechanism in mod_wsgi instead as doing it right in mod_python is a PITA and more work than it needs to be.
