      Description

      Taken from [~wastl-nagel]'s comments on NUTCH-827

      the form authentication is global and ignores <authScope>. So you have to restrict your crawl to the form authentication pages only. Ideally, also form authentication should be bound to a scope (one host, one URL prefix, etc.) same as HTTP authentication.
