Subject [STATUS] 1.3
Date Thu, 03 Jul 1997 06:32:50 GMT
It's never too early.  We want a beta out on the 15th right?  So next week
I want to stuff a lot of the pending features in.  I don't want them to
miss 1.3 ... we could hold off feature freeze until Aug 15, and just get
some betas out there to decrease the NT bug fix cycle. 

Anyhow, here's the list that used to piggyback the 1.2 beta status
announcements, with some comments.

If people want to repost the patches involved below that'd be great.
Otherwise next week I'll start digging them out of the archives.

And this doesn't even consider any of the suspended PRs.

Dean

  * Fix mod_negotiation to follow latest TCN draft
    Petr Lampa wants to work on this.

  * Doug MacEachern's [PATCH] merge dbm auth configs
        Status: The question is, should we be merging auth configs?
                Ken says not by default and not unless it's configurable.

  * redo lingering_close to check for old sockets to close out before
    accept() in child.
	Status: doesn't look to be overly clean to do in the current
	framework.  Will not have time to do implementation for this
	beta in any case.  If it turns out to be a big issue,
	could go in later.  (1.2.1?)

  * Marc wants to have a check to be sure
    log directory(ies) isn't writable by anyone except the user starting
    the server.  The posting in bugtraq only highlites the problem.
    Needs override.  See NCSA code for sample implem.
	Status: Marc busy writing

  * error compiling on NeXT:
	In file included from http_main.c:108:
	/NextDeveloper/Headers/bsd/netinet/tcp.h:57: duplicate member `th_off'
	/NextDeveloper/Headers/bsd/netinet/tcp.h:58: duplicate member `th_x2'

	Status: got a login in a NeXT OpenStep 4.x machine to test,
	looks like an interaction between gcc and the header
	files.  It is trying to include definitions for both big and
	little endian platforms, and that no work.

  * SONY NEWS port.  See both:
    <Pine.BSI.3.95.970310012527.10327F-100000@taz.hyperreal.org>
    <Pine.BSI.3.95.970310012855.10327K-100000@taz.hyperreal.org>
    Jim working on a patch, but not until after 1.2 release

  * Jim has patch for time taken to handle a request in status module

    Let's see it Jim!

  * status report shows PIDs in empty slots, user supplied some sort
     of patch; behavior now is correct, but perhaps some cleanup of
     how the results are displayed could be done after 1.2...
     <Pine.NEB.3.95.970212030312.13867I-100000@localhost.imdb.com>

Contrib stuff / future:
  
  * Chris Adams <cadams@ro.com> patch to mod_log_config to add %m and %c.

  * mod_log_config patch for conditional logging
	Status: contrib, not in server

  * Ed has an updated patch for limiting connections per IP

  * mod_include could use boyer-moore searching for <!--# and/or it could
    mmap the file.

    Dean has this partially done.

  * add some setlocale stuff?

    See PR#679 for an example of a problem with locales.

  * status module available from .htaccess files; Ken posted patch

  * tem@global2000.net provided a patch for mod_imap to make it more
    friendly with MS FrontPage map files.  Available in
    <Pine.LNX.3.95dg2.970305235225.28934H-200000@twinlark.arctic.org>

  * Dean's gif89 and expires hack

  * get_local_host and NIS patch fo SunOS 4
    <Pine.NEB.3.95.970320210733.4149H-100000@localhost>

  * internationalized documentation

  * pagecounter extension to mod_include
    <Pine.BSI.3.95.970322151230.29235I-100000@taz.hyperreal.org>

  * PR#344: 64-bit cleanups

    Dean has an OSF/1 login, and has leads on an openbsd/alpha and
    linux/alpha login.  Patch next week hopefully.
