Subject [PROPOSAL] Move AUTH_LDAP to /experimental (was: authentication rewrite)
Date Tue, 27 Aug 2002 15:27:16 GMT
   Now that 2.0.40 has been released and we are in development of .41
and the fact that there has been a proposal for re-architecting the AUTH
modules, I would like to propose that we move AUTH_LDAP out of it's own
project and into experimental.  This will enable AUTH_LDAP to get more
exposure as an external module, allow it to be included in future
releases of Apache 2 for testing and stabilization, and make sure that
it is not overlooked in future development.  LDAP is an important
authentication method and should be supported in Apache.

Hi -

Shouldn't a new thread be spawned for an(other) ldap vote (its deja vu
over again :)
