    * Martin's [PATCH] strtoul "should be fixed"
	Status: Martin +1, Jim +1

	Status: Dean +1,

    * Ken's [PATCH] for AllowOverrides-not-in-VirtualHost
	Status: Ken +1, Jim +1, Dean +1, Martin +1

    * Marc's [PATCH] fix buildmark
	Status: Marc +1, Dean, +1, Ken +1, Martin +1

    * Ben Hyde's [PATCH] performance tweak.

	Status: Martin +1, Marc +1, Dean (Wants something more common)

    * Martin's [PATCH] "Signing" server generated pages
	Status: Martin +1,

    * Marc's [PATCH] define to allow passing of Authorization header
	Status: Marc +1, Dean +1 (with note), Paul +1

	Status: Conceptual: Dean +1, Paul +1, Martin +1, Ken +1

    * Dean's [PRE-PATCH] expanding ap_snprintf()
	Status: Dean +1, Ben +1, Jim 0, Martin 0, Brian +1(?)
	See <>
	for a more up-to-date idea (int vformatter) that has a
	vote of +1 from Dean, Ben, Martin, Paul and Jim for concept

    * Manoj Kasichainula's <> libap implementation
	Status: Mahoj wants us to "hold off" on this patch, but
	others could ``re-create'' it :)

    * Martin's [PATCH] [FEATURE] Clickable Path Components in ftp dir header
	Status: Martin +1, Ken +1
In progress:

    * Martin Kraemer's [PATCH] Parsing URI into its components 
	This has "evolved" into a new module: util_uri. Martin
	will post when it's at a state where he's happy with it.

Needs patch:

Closed issues:

    * Removal of inetd mode
	Ken says he'll try to maintain it, since there are
	people/places who need it

Open issues:

    * discard_request_body only called in default_handler() and not die()
	which causes, for example, mod_cgi not to do the right
	thing. Add 'dummy = discard_request_body(r);' ?

    * Ken suggests that new check_cmd_context() and related defines
	should be non-static and in util_* so modules can use 'em.  (He
	didn't notice this flaw during the review.)

    * Sameer's mod_so implemetation
	See <>
	Issues: Underscores: Should I try prepending, appending, and
	 ignoring? -> Alexei says look at Java
	 Location? os/unix ??

    * 206 vs. 200 issue on Content-Length
	See <>

    * Conditional logging and aplogger
	Dean broke piped logging, -DNO_OTHER_CHILD to disable the reliable
	stuff if you depend on piped logging.  I figure nobody must, since
	we haven't seen a bug report and it'd show up easily under moderate
	load. Brian thinks Cond. logging is taking us in an opposite
	direction from where we should be going.

    * Brian's ``strange performance delays''
	mod_proxy and garbage collection?
	see: <>

    * Marc's socket options like source routing (kill them?)
	Marc, Dean, Martin say Yes

    * PR#951 (CGIs on Win32)
	Open? Closed? Fixed?

    * NameVirtualHost
	Causes mucho confusion... Dean is ready to ``admit defeat''
	but should we let him? Lars suggests making NameVirtualHost
	a required directive or at least an error message, since
	it will snag many who go from 1.2 to 1.3.

    * DDA's adding a tray application to the Windoze version for ease of
	Status: Ken +1, Sameer +1, Martin +1, Ben +1 (as long as
	we get a single executable)
	Paul: No like Win95 specific stuff

    * Apache Win32 v1.3b2 won't serve >16k
	Status: Has not be reproducable by project members
	Update: Ben has discovered the code that causes this. His
	patch works...

    * tarball issues:
       o Remove .Z files? Dean says yes, others don't really care
       o md5 or pgp or some combo of both?
       o Brian says yes... Jim says +1, Martin +1

    * The PR#918 patch above appears to have been bogus, should be fixed or
	reversed.  It has been reversed for now.

    * Martin's SEGV, and Alexei's GP Fault under windows (probably the same)

    * Marc's [BUG] include virtual and SCRIPT_NAME w/path_info
