How exactly does extensions to ignore work in the app config? I thought
that it would ignore any files with those extensions and pass them to
whatever would regularly serve them. Now I think it is the other way
I had added .jpg, .png, and .gif to the extensions to ignore thinking
that I only wanted the appserver to parse / deal with .py files. This
caused all my images to not load. After searching for the cause for
several days, I went back to the config file and removed those
extensions. Now the images load correctly.
Since this was appearing in my logs, I assumed that webware was
accessing the images and there was some other problem.

But now taking a look at my logs, .png requests, which are no longer
ignored, do not appear. This is almost the opposite of how I would have
thought this worked. If its ignored, why is it logged as an access
(without error), and when it is not ignored, why doesn't it appear in
Is this a bug, or was it designed this way? Could someone clarify
exactly what it means to ignore a file extension?
