   *) mod_log_config: Cleanup log_header_out function to allow multiple headers
      like Set-Cookie to be logged properly. PR 27787 
        modules/loggers/mod_log_config.c: r1.116 (2.x patch - need 1.3 version)
      jerenkrantz asks: Isn't this what apr_table_merge is for?
      nd replies: yep. But cookies won't be merged, because browsers don't
                  support it.
      jerenkrantz: Couldn't we copy the table and merge the values somehow?
                   This just seems like a lot of code to duplicate what we
                   have already.  *shrug*

In progress:

Needs patch:

    * get_path_info bug; ap_get_remote_host should be ap_vformatter instead.
      See: <>

    * URI issues
	- RFC2068 requires a server to recognize its own IP addr(s) in
	dot notation, we do this fine if the user follows the
	dns-caveats documentation... we should handle it in the case
	the user doesn't ever supply a dot-notation address.

    * Problems dealing with .-rooted domain names such as "twinlark."
        versus "".  See the thread containing
	Message-ID: <> for more
	details.  In particular this affects the correctness of the
	proxy and the vhost mechanism.

    * proxy_*_canon routines use r->proxyreq incorrectly.  See

Open issues:

    * Should we provide a way to force CustomError responses past IE's
      'prettify-if-less-than-N-bytes' bogosity?

    * general/3787: SERVER_PORT is always 80 if client comes to any port
      => needs review by the protocol guys, I think.

    * All DBMs suffer from confusion in dbmmanage (perl script) since the
        dbmmanage creates in the first-matched dbm format.  This is not
        necessarily the library that Apache was built with.  Aught to
        rewrite dbmmanage with the proper library for clean administration.

    * Marc's socket options like source routing (kill them?)
	Marc, Martin say Yes

    * In ap_bclose() there's no test that (fb->fd != -1) -- so it's
      possible that it'll do something completely bogus when it's 
      used for read-only things. - Dean Gaudet

    * Roy's HTTP/1.1 Wishlist items:
        1) byte range error handling

    * use of spawnvp in uncompress_child in mod_mime_magic - doesn't
      use the new child_info structure, is this still safe?  Needs to be 
      looked at.

    * suexec doesn't understand argv parameters; e.g.

        <!--#exec cmd="./ls -l" -->

      fails even when "ls" is in the same directory because suexec is trying
      to stat a file called "ls -l".  A patch for this is available at

      and it's not bad except that it doesn't handle programs with spaces in
      the filename (think win32, or samba-mounted filesystems).  There are
      several PR's to this and I don't see for security reasons why we can't
      accomodate it, though it does add complexity to suexec.c.
      Accepting quoted executable names solves that issue, except that the
      exec cmd="" parsing needs to accept escaped quotes.
      PR #1120
      Brian: +1
        Status: Already resolved in Apache 2.0 - exec is defined as passing
                the cmd="" argument as argv[0], which means it is -only- the
                file name to execute (with spaces allowed in the name.)
Win32/Netware specific issues:

    * mod_rewrite's cache isn't threadsafe, needs a mutex on Win32/Netware
      (and OS/2?)

    * apparently either "BrowserMatch" or the "nokeepalive" variable
      cause instability - see PR#1729.
