APR::Date::parse_rfc does not accept a date of the form: Wed, 14 Nov 2007 17:03 -0800 (Note that there are no seconds on the time) This is RFC822 compliant: hour = 2DIGIT ":" 2DIGIT [":" 2DIGIT] And it is RFC2822 compliant: time-of-day = hour ":" minute [ ":" second ] Apparently, APR::Date will work with a date specification that does not include seconds, but only if the year is only 2 digits. My report is based on observed behavior in 2.0.2, but also on the latest documentation. This is on a linux FC6 system if that matters.

Thanks for the report. I can confirm this is still a problem with 2.0.7, built against Apache 2.2.22. However, the limitation lies in the underlying APR (actually, APR-util) function, apr_date_parse_rfc(), which APR::Date::parse_rfc() is simply a wrapper onto. The problem should therefore be reported on https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/ instead. If and when a new version of APR-util incorporating an improvement in this regard is released then mod_perl's wrapper onto it will pick it up with no changes required here. (The limitation is still present in the latest release of APR-util, 1.5.1.)
