Subject Re: [PATCH] PR#378 part 1: Fix handling of request body in core
Date Sat, 19 Jul 1997 18:41:35 GMT
This looks fine to me, +1.  But what happens when things like mod_status
are sent a request body they don't handle?  I thought the core took care
of that already.  If not we've got a few little bugs to fix up.

On the topic of 1.2.2, I am totally surprised that the solaris HUP thing
has not proven to be as large a problem as it first seemed.  We've had
only 2 or 3 PRs about it.  It probably helps that known_bugs is so
explicit about the solution, but I expected far more reports of problems.
Maybe nobody HUPs their servers :)
