   Plan:
   
  -    Let's shoot for release of 1.3b4 on January 31, 1998.
  -    Concern: Should we hold off on any new code changes
  -     in order to try to get 1.3.0 out the door asap? Once
  -     that's done, we can split off 2.0 from the present CVS
  -     tree and start working on that, while putting some
  -     patches into 1.3.1b1-dev. Let's get 1.3.0 out soon so
  -     we can really start playing with the code, which isn't
  -     wise when we're trying to push a release out.
  +    Figure out whether we should work from modified 1.3 sources or
  +    leave the 2.0 module empty and only populate it with needful
  +    things as they're rewritten.

  -	<Pine.LNX.3.95dg3.971121113953.29532D-100000@twinlark.arctic.org>
  -	Status: Dean +1, Martin +1, Alexei -1 (shared lib concerns)
  -
   Concepts:
   
  -   * Jim's [CONCEPT] platform.h header file. Instead of lumping
  -     all OS stuff in conf.h, create a ./platforms/ sub-dir
  -     and have Configure copy and modify platform.h as needed.
  -	<199712272303.SAA16225@devsys.jaguNET.com>
  -
  -    * Dean's [PRE-PATCH] expanding ap_snprintf()
  -	<Pine.LNX.3.95dg3.971023233600.4431I-100000@twinlark.arctic.org>
  -	Status: Dean +1, Ben +1, Jim 0, Martin 0, Brian +1(?), Ken +1
  -	See <Pine.LNX.3.95dg3.971024175935.25347U-100000@twinlark.arctic.org>
  -	for a more up-to-date idea (int vformatter) that has a
  -	vote of +1 from Dean, Ben, Martin, Paul, Jim, and Ken for concept
   
   In progress:
   
  -    * Martin Kraemer's [PATCH] Parsing URI into its components 
  -      This has "evolved" into a new module: util_uri. Martin
  -      will post when it's at a state where he's happy with it.
  -      Ken would like to see it in libap instead of libmain.
  -
  -    * Dean's [PATCH] yet another slow function
  -        <Pine.LNX.3.95dg3.980106142612.1054W-100000@twinlark.arctic.org>
  -	Status: Dean +1, Jim +1, Martin +1, Paul +1
  -	Needs to be redone so that it better supports non-ascii hosts.
  -
  -    * Ken's IndexFormat enhancement to mod_autoindex to allow
  -      CustomLog-like tailoring of directory listing formats
   
   Needs patch:
   
  -    * Dean's "locale" project
  -	See <Pine.LNX.3.95dg3.971219001345.7010F-100000@twinlark.arctic.org>
  -	Status: Jim'll look into it
  -    
  -    * os_ abstract is_only_below() in mod_include.c
  -
  -    * proxy security fixes from 1.2.5 need to be brought forward
  -
  -    * DoS created by the lame hostname lookup code in check_fulluri, which
  -	should be part of the proxy and not in the core
   
   Closed issues:
   
  -    * Removal of inetd mode
  -	Ken says he'll try to maintain it, since there are
  -	people/places who need it
  -
  -    * The decision has been made to experiment with allowing code
  -      changes to be committed without prior review.
  -
  -    * Guidelines for commit-then-review are documented at
  -      <http://dev.apache.org/guidelines.html#ctr>
   
   Open issues:
   
  -    * Provide consistant prefixes; suggestions:
  -
  -      Apache provided general functions (e.g., ap_cpystrn)
  -	ap_xxx: Ken +1
  -
  -      Public API functions (e.g., palloc)
  -	apapi_xxx: Ken +1
  -	appublic_xxx:
  -	appub_xxx:
  -
  -      Private functions which we can't make static
  -      but should be (e.g., new_connection)
  -	apprivate_xxx:
  -	appri_xxx:
  -	httpd_xxx: Ken +1
  -
  -    * Maybe moving *all* of the *.h header files into a new
  -      src/include directory?
  -	Status: Ken +1, Dean +1
  -
  -    * Renaming the "apache" CVS module to "apache-1.2" and the
  -      "apachen" module to "apache-1.3" - and, at some point,
  -      copying (*not* branching) the apache-1.3 module to a new
  -      apache-2.x tree and opening up 2.0 development.
  -	Status: Ken +1, Jim +1 (let do it NOW :) )
  -
  -    * Ken's [POLL] apachen/patches directory
  -      Shall we experiment with allowing patches to be distributed for
  -      voting through cvs, by creating a directory under the source tree
  -      and putting them there?  Please vote.
  -	<34B8EE39.43F32BE0@Golux.Com>
  -	Status: Ken +1, Randy 0, Dean 0, Jim +1, Paul 0
  -
  -    * Paul would like to see a 'gdbm' option because he uses
  -      it a lot. Dean notes that 'gdbm' include 'db' support
  -      so we need to watch the library ordering.
  -
  -	Dean notes:  Check rev 1.72 -> rev 1.73 of
  -	src/Configuration.tmpl.  I re-ordered mod_auth_dbm and
  -	mod_auth_db at this time, and I'm pretty sure it was to
  -	deal with this issue.  But I think I still ran into
  -	troubles if I automatically looked for gdbm.
  -
  -    * What do we call the binary: apache or httpd? Under UNIX
  -      it's httpd, under Win32 it's apache. Maybe rename it
  -      to apache-httpd?
  -	apache-httpd: Ken +1
  -
  -    * Maybe a http_paths.h file? See
  -	<Pine.BSF.3.95q.971209222046.25627D-100000@valis.worldgate.com>
  -
  -    * Release builds: Should we provide Configuration or not?
  -      Should we 'make all suexec' in src/support?
  -	Ken +1 (possible suexec path issue, though)
  -
  -    * root's environment is inherited by the Apache server. Jim, Ken &
  -      Dean thinks we should recommend using 'env' to build the
  -      appropriate environment. Marc and Alexei don't see any
  -      big deal.
  -
  -      should be non-static and in util_* so modules can use 'em.  (He
  -      didn't notice this flaw during the review.)
  -
  -    * Sameer's mod_so implemetation
  -	See <199711092016.MAA17039@gabber.c2.net>
  -	Issues: Underscores: Should I try prepending, appending, and
  -	 ignoring? -> Alexei says look at Java
  -	 Location? os/unix ??
  -
  -    * 206 vs. 200 issue on Content-Length
  -	See <Pine.BSF.3.95q.971102000930.5555B-100000@valis.worldgate.com>
  -	Roy says current behavior is correct, but Alexei disagrees.
  -	Marc sides with Alexei.
  -
  -    * Marc's socket options like source routing (kill them?)
  -	Marc, Dean, Martin say Yes
  -
  -    * Marc's [BUG] include virtual and SCRIPT_NAME w/path_info
  -	<Pine.BSF.3.95.970928122038.21692C-100000@alive.znep.com>
  -
  -    * Ken's PR#1053: an error when accessing a negotiated document
  -      explicitly names the variant selected.  Should it do so, or should
  -      the base input name be referenced?
  -
   
   Win32 specific issues:
   
    Open issues:
   
  -    * Should ApacheCore.dll be merged back into the main server
  -      image?  May make debugging easier..
   
    In progress:
   
  -    * Ben's ASP work... All agree it sounds cool.
  -
  -    * DDA's adding a tray application to the Windoze version for ease of
  -      status/management.
  -	<01BCDB29.2C04DEB0@caravan.individual.com>
  -	<01BCDB2A.F8C09010@caravan.individual.com>
  -	Status: Ken +1, Sameer +1, Martin +1, Ben +1 (as long as
  -	we get a single executable)
  -	Paul: No like Win95 specific stuff
  -	Ken: What's W95-specific about it?
   
    Help:
   
  -    * numerous uses of strcpy and strcat have potential for buffer
  -      overflow, someone should rewrite or verify they're safe
  -
  -    * process/thread model
  -	- need dynamic thread creation/destruction, similar to 
  -	  Unix process model
  -	- can't use WaitForMultipleObjects in the same way we
  -	  do now, since that has a limit of 64(!) objects.  Grr.
  -	  PR#1665
  -
  -    * some errors printed by CGIs to stderr don't end up making it
  -      to the server log unless an extra debugging message is added
  -      after they run? (PR#1725 indicates this may not be just Win32)
  -
  -    * bad use of chdir in some places; it isn't thread-specific
  -
  -    * handle bugs that make it pop up errors on console, ie. segv 
  -      equiv?  Can we do this?  Need to make it robust.
  -
  -    * install
  -	- make installshield work
  -	- config in cvs tree?
  -	- install docs, etc.?
  -	- location for install
  -
  -    * signal type handling
  -    	- how to rotate logs from command line?
  -
  -    * the mutex should be critical-regions, since the current design
  -      is creating a mess of SO calls that are unnecessary
  -
  -    * we don't mmap on NT.  Use TransmitFile?
  -
  -    * CGIs
  -        - hangs on multiple CGI execution?  PR#1607,1129
  -    	    Marc can't repeat...
  -	- docs on how they work w/scripts
  -	- use registry to find interpreter?
  -	- WTF is the buffering coming from?
  -	    - we don't have a way to make non-blocking files on NT!
  -
  -    * performance
  -
  -    * documentation:
  -	- running the server without admin
  -	- how CGIs work
  -	- update README.NT
  -	- short/long name handling
  -	- better status page on current state of NT for users
  -
  -    * http_main.c hell
  -	- split into two files?
  -
  -    * who should run the service?  Who exactly is the "system account"?
  -
  -      docs say:
  -
  -      Localsystem is a very privileged account locally, so you shouldn't run
  -      any shareware applications there. However, it has no network privileges
  -      and cannot leave the machine via any NT-secured mechanism, including
  -      file system, named pipes, DCOM, or secure RPC.
  -
  -      and:
  -
  -      A service that runs in the context of the LocalSystem account
  -      inherits the security context of the SCM. It is not associated with
  -      any logged-on user account and does not have credentials (domain
  -      name, user name, and password) to be used for verification. This
  -      has several implications: [... removed ...]
  -
  -
  -      That _really_ sucks.  Can we recommend running Apache as some 
  -      other user?
  -
  -
  -    * need a crypt() of some sort.
  -	- sources are easy; problem is export restrictions on DES
  -	- if we don't do DES, can do md5
  -
  -    * modules that need to be made to work on win32
  -        - mod_example isn't multithreadreded
  -	- mod_unique_id (needs mt changes)
  -	- mod_auth_db.c  (do we want to even try this?  We should have some
  -          db of some sort... what else can we pick from under win32?)
  -	- mod_auth_dbm.c
  -	- mod_info.c (PR re exporting symbols for it...)
  -	- mod_log_agent.c
  -	- mod_log_referer.c
  -	- mod_mime_magic.c (needs access to mod_mime API stage...)
   
  -    * do something to disable bogus warnings
