'feature'?

Can you explain?

The only thing I could think of was index.php not being set as the 
default file - given the thread participants, I didn't think that 
explanation likely.

I know nothing of drupal, but the only thing I can think of that 
explains Brent's problem and solution is that at time of repository 
install/configuration, the presence of index.php was not detected, so 
not built into those files. Otherwise, I'd a thought an Apache restart 
would restore expected functionality. Since it evidently didn't ...
(and it being likely others will run into this problem)

'feature'?

Can you explain?
