Subject Re: [PATCH] Apache 1.3.21-dev for NetWare builds (5)
Date Mon, 27 Aug 2001 16:46:28 GMT
     About 90% of the NetWare specific changes for the APR layer have been checked into CVS.
 I am still working on the final 10% (which is usually the hardest).  It may not look that
way only because we were able to piggy back most of the NetWare code on Unix.  This is a good
thing for us because it means that we didn't have to rewrite a lot of code.  I still have
to organize some of the platform specific header files and get some of the kinks worked out
in the project file, but we are close to having and APR layer that should work with the HTTPD
server.  In theory as soon as we get APR complete, there shouldn't be any additional work
necessary to make Apache 2.0 run.  Of course a theory is just a theory until it is proven
and we won't have the proof until APR is complete for NetWare :).

at this time we cannot discuss anything about NetWare and 2.0 because the NetWare OS dependent
files are not in CVS tree so we cannot build a 2.0 NetWare version...
