Subject [PATCH] UDP Listeners (was Re: DNS+HTTP redirection system inside an Apache module)
Date Tue, 15 Jul 2003 04:07:57 GMT

I would like to commit your UDP listener patch to apache 2.1's source tree.

(providing other people don't have any major objections)

Of course.. I would need your permission to do this first.
