Subject [STATUS] 1.3b3-dev Sun Nov 16 10:07:28 EST 1997
Date Sun, 16 Nov 1997 15:17:05 GMT
Very, very close... At present, it looks like the
only thing is the ``spaces in NT argv'' problem.
Paul has a suggested patch, which Ben agrees with,
but Ben points out that a more general solution
is needed. He will try to work one out. We'll hold
off on 1.3b3 until Ben decides.

As of:
    Sun Nov 16 10:07:28 EST 1997


    2.0  : In the future
    1.3b3: In development... Release 11/16/97 or so
    1.3b2: Tarball rolled and available
	   Source tagged as APACHE_1_3b2
	   Apache web-page reflects availability of 1.3b2
	   Announcement released
    1.3b1: There is no 1.3b1


    * At present, we are close to releasing 1.3b3. We are waiting
      for a resolution of the "blank in filenames" problem in Win32
      before we tag and freeze 1.3b3. There are some patches that
      have enough votes to be included in 1.3b3 if commited soon.
      When the above mention "problem" is fixed, the 1.3b3 code
      will be CVS tagged, but a tarball won't be rolled. This is
      so we can roll the UNIX stuff and the Win32 stuff at the same
      time, at which point we can formally announce. Ken wants to
      do the announcement.

    * Marc's [PATCH] fix strtoul

    * 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

    * 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:

    * 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

    * 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

    * 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
