Subject RE: We would like to submit Apache for OpenVMS support
Date Thu, 10 Jun 1999 19:00:57 GMT
Looks interesting.

Would you be able to provide a context diff of your changes so that
the changes can be funneled through the normal review processes? I
would also encourage you to join the Apache developers list by sending
'subscribe new-httpd' to majordomo@apache.org. We would like to see
your involvement directly in the Apache development process. Once you
have joined, it is possible to send your diff file to
new-httpd@apache.org with [PATCH] in the Subject: line. If you would
prefer, forward your patch to me and I will insert it in the process.

Thanks. Look forward to seeing you there.
