Subject For 1.1
Date Wed, 26 Jun 1996 01:09:37 GMT

So, what is left for Apache 1.1? Let's try and make a list or something.

Now, I know there are a couple bugs. There's the Windows/Keep-Alive bug.
Anyone know anything about fixing this? What about the UnixWare bug? You
know, I had a dream about that last night (really)... I dreamt that a
user sent us a bug report, and they included a patch that made Apache work
on UnixWare. It involved changing "const char*" references to "data
char*", which I have no clue what means (I don't think "data" is a C
keyword) or why it would work, but if that's useful to anyone... :P

There are at least two outstanding issues that I've introduced:

1) Moving mod_env (I've changed my mind on mod_cern_meta) to be
uncommented by default in Configuration. Does anyone really object to

2) Fixing inetd CGI requests. I've decided the first patch I posted (the
one to mod_cgi.c) is wrong, because really, all instances of spawn_child()
will then wreak havoc on inetd requests. The second (to alloc.c) is the
one I'd like to see included. If anyone would like me to post it again, I
will. Anyone have any thoughts on it? We still officially support inetd,
and not having CGI scripts work is a Bad Thing...

Then, other things... there's Jim's 18k conf.h-related patch... are we
leaving it or getting rid of it? How about the (now-withdrawn) patch to
mod_cern_meta to make it conditional? If that patch doesn't work, can we
take the modified version from apache-XX and use that? (it makes MetaDir
and MetaStuffix per-dir, and only activates if MetaSuffix is explicitly

Anything else?
