That sounds like a veto. You've convinced me it's a bad idea.


Graceful restarts need to be hidden

*** CHANGES.orig	Sun Nov 17 18:31:50 1996
--- CHANGES	Sun Nov 17 18:32:05 1996
*** 105,113 ****
    *) Fix ErrorDocument handling.  When ErrorDocument failed it used to 
       display filename instead of error message. [Paul Sutton]
-   *) Graceful restart code added. This allows the server to restart without
-      losing current connections on receipt of signal 2 (SIGINT). [Ben Laurie]
    *) Added BROKEN_WAIT flag to conf.h, to be used on systems which fail to
       reap their children correctly (symptom: mod_status shows children which
       don't exist). [Ben Laurie]
--- 105,110 ----

BTW, wasn't it changed to SIGUSR1 anyway ?

There's no real mention of HTTP/1.1 in the CHANGES file. Alexei, do you want
to add something ?
