Subject Announcing: CLI (.NET) httpd subproject incubation
Date Fri, 16 Jul 2004 20:35:14 GMT
I'm pleased to invite all interested members of the httpd community
to participate in the incubation of a new httpd subproject, cli-dev.

An immediate and initial benefit of this subproject is a donation of 
code I created at Covalent to host ASP.NET content within httpd 2.0,
strictly for the MS .NET environment on win32.  Of course, the mono
community already enjoys an ASP.NET/apache hosting environment.

The short-term goal of this project is to release mod_aspdotnet for
our win32 users.

The long-term goal is to refactor the CLI/.NET interfaces, e.g. mono's
and MS .NET to provide an abstract .NET/Apache thunk.  With that
done, it then becomes possible to implement a mod_perl-like native
interface to the Apache.Web.Server, isolated from the IP concerns
of hosting ASP.NET on a non-MS platform.

If you would like to help in the initial code-review effort, or the ultimate
project of building Apache.Web.Server (implementation independent),
on top of the CLI/.NET environment, please email this weekend or
early Monday to cli-dev-subscribe .at.  General
discussion about incubation, release, roadmap and so forth will occur
once folks have a chance to join in.

Please recognize, this is *not* an accepted project (yet) and has steps
in the incubator and httpd PMC to follow before it becomes a formal, 
adopted httpd sub-project.

Look forward to seeing some of you at cli-dev@httpd :)  Yours,
