Subject [VOTE] release httpd mod_ftp-0.9.4 beta?
Date Mon, 08 Jun 2009 23:07:04 GMT
mod_ftp fans;

Let's try this one more time, here's a 0.9.4 candidate which should have
none of the 2.0 or 2.2 compatibility problems of the previous attempt.
Thanks to everyone who spent the effort reviewing that package!

Please fetch up the newly prepared httpd-mod_ftp-0.9.4.tar.gz (available
now), or the win32/netware/os2 suitable package

review, take it for a spin, and cast your choice

  [ ] -1 for any release of 0.9.4 (regressed from 0.9.2?)
  [ ] +1 to release as 0.9.4-beta
  [ ] +1 to release as 0.9.4-beta, and ready to tag GA (1.0.0)

Please let us know if you test the two significant issues;


  * EPSV and EPRT need real world testing for different routing and DMZ
    cases and validating a range of IPv6-enabled clients' interop.
    Note many IPv4-only NAT routers appear to ignore EPRT commands,
    even as they would fix up NAT addresses from PORT commands.

  * Extra attention should be paid to PORT and EPRT connections, especially
    when assigned low numbered ports, e.g. FTPActiveRange 20

These are my serious hesitations in blessing the release 1.0.0 just yet.
Please be brutal in respect to testing both aspects :)  Other protocol and
API related showstoppers have been added with respect to the FEAT and OPTS
extensions, which need small modifications to the API for "cooperation"
between extension modules.

For getting started,
