Since there's talk of maybe another beta, it's time for
this. IMO 1.3 can't be released until we have a suitable
Win32 Install suite.

As of:

    1.3b4: In development, maybe a release in a week or so?

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.

    * Ben's ASP work... All agree it sounds cool.
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:

    * What do we call the binary: apache or httpd? Under UNIX
	it's httpd, under Win32 it's apache. Maybe rename it
	to apache-httpd?

    * Maybe a http_paths.h file? See

    * Release builds: Should we provide Configuration or not?

    * Apache's 'pid' file is created under the UID/GID that Apache
	switches to. Dean thinks this should be fixed.
    * root's environment is inherited by the Apache server. Jim and
	Dean thinks we should recommend using 'env' to build the
	appropriate environment. Marc and Alexei don't see any
	big deal.

    * 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 <>
	Roy says current behavior is correct, but Alexei disagrees.
	Marc sides with Alexei.

    * 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. Randy would like to
	take this up, but wonders what our comments/positions are.

    * 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. Randy wonders why
	this isn't the default behavior.

    * 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
