Subject RE: Apache 2.0 for multi protocol usage
Date Wed, 11 Apr 2001 11:40:18 GMT
NO NO NO NO NO!  Please do NOT HOLD up Apache 2.0 for multi-protocol!!!  WE
HAVE to have an apache 2.0 out SOON!!!!  I'm sorry, I feel very strongly about
this... :)  While the idea of one server handling multiple protocols is an
interesting one (IIS has been able to handle HTTP and FTP for a long time
now), I'm not sure if this is really something that we want.  IE if there's a
security bug in part of the core apache, boom suddenly not only our web server
but our FTP server are compromised... that's bad IMNSHO.

Various people have indeed various opinions. More then a year ago
Apache 2.0 already provided good capabilities for scaling. IMHO,
they should have released that already as a seperate version.
Even if it did not have so much other functionality over 1.3, like
filtering. It had enough good things and it would have showed
progress to the world. I believe since it already took so long,
people are willing to wait for the good and extra features
(if I may call the multiprotocol proposal a good feature).
