Subject Re: mod_fcgid license questions
Date Fri, 12 Dec 2008 02:00:09 GMT
Hi, guys
    Nice to meet you :) I hope I can help to clarify the questions.

No. I didn't borrow any code from mod_fastcgi.

Yes, I confirm I wanted the GPL version 2.0 apply to everything.

Actually I didn't care too much about which license I should choose. The
reason I chose GPL is that all other license descriptions are in English and
are tricky. I didn't want to spend much time on studying those terms so I
just followed most of people to choose GPL. I intended to put it as open
source so people can share. I don't really care which license it is under. 
(Thanks Miss Xiaomei for this native translation)

I was single when I developed this project, but now I have to spend more time
with my family, and I am now actually interesting on LinuxTV things(So I can spend time on
something both I and my wife need :).
But I would like to see someone else take over my mod_fcgid project and
continune to make it better. I get a lot from the others(that why I like open source and share),
and I would like to share to the other if I have a chance. It's my pleasure if ASF willing
to take it over.

Anything I can help please let me know :)

Thanks
