Subject Adding full environment variable support to mod_proxy_ajp
Date Thu, 28 Aug 2008 06:53:24 GMT
My environment is affected by bug 40047, the lack of a mod_proxy_ajp  
equivalent to mod_jk's JkEnvVar directive.  (The mod_rewrite gyrations  
required to work around this with AJP_* vars are too unpleasant to  
maintain.)  If I write a patch for this feature, might it stand a  
chance of upstream inclusion?  If so, thoughts on the following would  
be appreciated.

* The directive should probably be handled by mod_proxy.  It may be  
relevant to protocols besides AJP, and mod_proxy already has  
configuration objects, unlike mod_proxy_ajp.

* A lot of the code can probably be reused from mod_jk, unless anyone  
foresees a problem with this.

* What's an appropriate name for the directive -- ProxyEnvVar?
