Subject Re: event mpm and slave connections
Date Sat, 30 Jan 2016 05:04:39 GMT
If you can give me a few days (not httpd'ing again until
late Sun eve) - this is very close to the issues we have
in mod_ftp with the data connection/request aside the
control connection.  The right patch will improve both
sets of dirty hacks :)

Thanks for the proposal!
