Cookie expiration?

My users were complaining about having to log into RT all the time, so
I added a new ‘CookieExpires’ variable to the RT namespace.

Does that sound like a good thing? (I’m not an experienced web person
and am new to RT).

I made these modifications:

To /usr/local/rt3/etc/

I added the line:

Set($CookieExpires, ‘+99M’);

To /usr/local/rt3/share/html/Elements/:

I added “-expires => $RT::CookieExpires” to the “new CGI::Cookie” call.

(I have the rt3 tree under cvs control, so I should be able to back out
of changes or merge with the next release of rt3 pretty easily.)
