[Phpmyadmin-devel] Securing the test directory

Zarubin / all,

I would like to add a .htaccess file to the test directory of phpmyadmin
similar to the libraries/.htaccess file.

This should not affect regular users as the directory is not included in
the download kits.

It would protect someone who uses a Git checkout from accidentally
exposing path information though.

Would it be enough to include a README.txt file in the test directory
which explains how to allow certain IP's ?

What are your thoughts?

Met vriendelijke groet / Regards,
