Subject svn commit: r787961 - in /httpd/httpd/branches/2.2.x/docs/manual/mod: core.html.en core.xml
Date Wed, 24 Jun 2009 09:46:30 GMT
Author: jorton
Date: Wed Jun 24 09:46:30 2009
New Revision: 787961

URL: http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?rev=787961&view=rev
Log:
Merge r641855 from trunk:

Update Timeout section, the semantics changed completely
since 1.3 and the caveats on signals not being reset
thankfully no longer apply either.
