Subject Re: Votes for 0.8.12...
Date Tue, 29 Aug 1995 23:57:31 GMT

In the interested of validating my +1 votes, I only gave +1's to patches 
I actually tested, or find mostly cosmetic.

tested - I killed my nameserver and then completely restarted httpd, and 
it returned "Cannot resolve host name --- exiting!".  Much
preferable to a core dump.

compiles fine on BSDI 2.0

with the caveats as posted in my previous message - HAS_GMTOFF has to be 
defined in the __bsdi__ switch in conf.h.
