Subject 1.2.2 vs 1.2.3??
Date Tue, 12 Aug 1997 09:02:35 GMT

Ok, some of us decided that the rolled pre-releases for 1.2.2 could lead to
confusion  because of the missing -dev in the version number. I accept this
and have to say sorry. So, we should roll a new pre-release for in-depth
testing with a concrete platform list. I spent some time and prepared a new
STATUS 1.2.3 message but don't want to post it as such because only three
members (Marc, Ken and Ben) said they really want 1.2.3. 

So, to avoid any more confusion (for the case all others really want 1.2.2 and
not 1.2.3!) please give your votes wheter we should go on as stated in the
above STATUS message.

Thanks.

STATUS for Apache 1.2.3
=======================

Release Status:

    o IMPORTANT:
      Apache 1.2.2 was canceled because the pre-release tarballs were already
      rolled with a server version named 1.2.2 instead of 1.2.2-dev and a few
      of us (at least Marc, Ken and Ben) really want to avoid any confusion,
      especially related to occuring bugreports, etc. Because at least some
      people have grabbed the pre-release tarballs, even when they were only
      put on ftp://dev.apache.org/httpd/dist/apache_1.2.2/.

      So now we treat 1.2.2 as a never released version which existed only for
      internal tests and bumped up the version number to 1.2.3-dev.  A new
      pre-release was rolled again. Now correctly tagged 1.2.3-dev!! We now
      start a real test cycle with 1.2.3-dev for the various platform (see
      table below).

    o The current pre-release tarball can be found at:
      ftp://dev.apache.org/pub/httpd/dist/apache_1.2.3-dev/

    => ** PLEASE TEST IT NOW YOURSELF AND THEN YOUR TEST TO THE TABLE.
       ** IF ALL GOES WELL WE CAN ROLL THE FINAL 1.2.3 TARBALL IN A FEW DAYS.

    o Still known problems with compilation and/or runtime:
      (When any occur we fix it immediatley in 1.2.3-dev
       and roll a new pre-release)

      - On taz (BSD/OS 2.1) it compiles only with CC=cc because the gcc there
        (=/usr/local/bin/gcc) needs an additional -lbind because of inet_addr
        and inet_ntoa. No real problem with Apache, I think, but a little one
        on taz itself.

    o Votes for final release:
      (Should be dependend on the success of all essential platforms,
       at least for compilation!)
