Subject Re: [PATCH] repost - read request timeout
Date Tue, 06 Nov 2001 20:47:23 GMT
Hi Tom,

It wasn't lost in the traffic.  We can't use this change in 1.3.x because
it would break binary compatibility due to the structure changes.  We can
try to do something like it in 2.0.x, but that tree uses a completely
different method of timeout on send and receive.  Someone should check
to see if those values are separately configurable.

Thanks for the patch in any case,
