Subject Re: New Protocol module, POP3
Date Mon, 02 Jul 2001 22:06:27 GMT
I may not be in the "group", but I think that any code that protocol modules
for major protocols like POP3, IMAP, FTP, etc. could/should be maintained
and supported within the Apache system.

However, it should not be in the httpd tree.  I think what we are seeing is
that Apache 2.0 is not the httpd server as the tree and packages suggest.
Apache 2.0 is more than an httpd server.  This code is an example of that.

Of course, the argument can be made that the Apache Group does not want to
be involved with other servers than httpd.  That is not for me to say.
