Subject Auth_ldap experimental status (was:Re: [STATUS] (httpd-2.0) Wed Mar 9 23:45:36 2005)
Date Thu, 10 Mar 2005 17:47:31 GMT
   I am of the same opinion as Justin in that I believe that multiple
auth providers can be put into 2.2 at anytime.  If it happens to make it
before initial release fine.  If it is after, it is just additional
functionality which won't break backward compatibility.  As far as
backporting other authnz_ldap patches, Josh's patch is minor and can be
easily done.  Other's may take a lot more work and the problem that we
have right now is that there are very few of us that are looking at
auth_ldap and even fewer that are reviewing backports and voting.  So
getting the required 3-votes doesn't happen very fast if at all.  Also,
if we can get 2.2 moving and out soon, backports won't matter anyway.
