Subject FW: [PATCH] RE: [STATUS] (httpd-2.0)
Date Fri, 07 Sep 2001 01:26:31 GMT
I thought I'd sent this mail earlier.. I never got the mail back - 'just
forwarding it again.. (sorry if it's a duplicate)



	I was wondering if somebody could update the status of mod_ssl in
the STATUS file. I'm providing my inputs  - but if you have a more
appropriate comment, please go ahead and update it.

     * Port of mod_ssl to Apache 2.0:

-      The current porting state is summarized in modules/ssl/README.  The
-      step is to figure out how the old three configuration contexts
-      per-server, per-directory) can be ported to Apache 2.0 (especially
-      global context which has to survive server restarts RSE still does
-      know how to port). Then the remaining source files (which depend on
-      configuration contexts) which are still tagged with "-" in
-      modules/ssl/README can be ported.
+      The current porting state is summarized in modules/ssl/README. The
+      remaining work include :
+      (1) stablize the SSL filter logic
+      (2) Enable the various SSL caching mechanisms (shmcb, shmht)
+      (3) Enable SSL extentions
+      (4) Try to seperate the https filter logic from mod_ssl -
+          This is to facilitate other modules to use the https filter or
+          mod_ssl logic or both as required.

-      One more thing to figure out is how and when mod_ssl can provide the
-      interactive pass phrase dialog (in Apache 1.3 it used the first init
-      round [where tty was still not detached] and skipped the second init
-      round [where it was already detached]). Apache 2.0 requires (or
-      has?) an official hook where such tty-dialogs can be performed.
-      RSE is on holiday until June 11th, 2001. After this he starts
-      working on mod_ssl again and tries to make mod_ssl running inside
-      Apache 2.0 by end of June. If anyone wants to help making mod_ssl
-      running in the meantime, feel free to make your hands dirty inside
-      modules/ssl/. Do whatever you think is appropriate to get it
-      running. I've no objections of any kind, except: just do not
-      remove any old functionality. Keep everything, even if it needs
-      #if 0...endif wrapped to not make trouble for you.
       optimization working in threaded.  prefork's new design for how
       to notice data on the pod should be sufficient.
