Subject Re: reallyall vs. all vs. most
Date Wed, 06 Jul 2011 19:17:05 GMT
I aggree with Daniel and Gregg, that it may be better to have 
mod_log_debug at 'most'. And mod_lua better only at 'all', until it 
has matured more.

Fine with me

Sure, nothing gets removed from reallyall. But IMO these three are 
_really_ obsolete, so no reason for 'all' or even 'most'.

Most people I know use AJP for tomcat, and fcgi is supposed to become 
the recommended method for php. Therefore I would definitely prefer 
'most' for these two. Don't know about scgi.

Yes, that's my thought. If the openssl headers are in the default 
place, or there is a --with-ssl=/path on the command line, it's very 
unlikely that crypto is forbidden.

More than mod_file_cache, IMHO. And of course enable only if the deps 
are fullfilled.

I would consider this more an example module. Or is this really used

OK, didn't know that. I thought it was completely useless on unix.
