Subject httpd win64 binaries
Date Sun, 02 Nov 2008 23:18:58 GMT
Hi All,

I was running a bit late about compiling the 64-bit windows binaries I
have on my site this month and mentioned on #apache-helpdesk how much
a pain it was.
The subject of not having an official binary package was brought up.
We couldn't think of a reason why not except no body wants or has the
time to do it.

Today I was checking some stats on my server and i though i'd share them:

I'm not sure what the 32-bit binaries have as download count but I
think around 2000-2500 isn't bad for binaries I host on my personal
website*.

So the question is... why are there no official binaries? There
definitely is some interest in this.
Also the fact that people mail and complain why I haven't released the
latest version when I'm late seems to suggest they do want them bad
and they are to lazy or can't compile them, themselves.

* sadly these binaries aren't complete and things like the apr-util
mysql driver are still missing. mod_deflate and mod_ssl are included
though.
