  !!! HTTPD Project, CLI subproject, mod_aspdotnet Codebase IP Clearance Status
  !!! Description
  The Apache 2.0 module mod_aspdotnet, and CLI implementation of Apache.Web.Host,
  together form a hosting environment for ASP.NET applications within Microsoft's
  .NET Framework for Windows, and the Apache 2.0 httpd server running on Win32.
  This code was developed by William A. Rowe, Jr., Covalent Technologies, Inc.,
  and is donated to the Apache community as a starting point for multiple
  avenues of CLI integration with the Apache 2.0 httpd server.
  Microsoft, as part of it's .NET patents, asserts ownership of the implementation
  of System.Web.Hosting, the framework under which ASP.NET applications are
  instantiated.  Note that this patent does not assert the implementation of
  System.Web.Host, System.Web.Request and other specific implementations of
  the server 'container' which forwards ASP.NET requests to the .NET Framework's
  implementation of System.Web.Hosting.
  The initial goal of the PMC is to release this ASP.NET implementation 
  of ASP.NET for he benefit of Apache httpd Win32 users.
  The second goal of the PMC will be to refactor the Microsoft COM/.NET CLI 
  thunks which exist in mod_aspdotnet, from the specific implementation of
  the ASP.NET-based Apache.Web.Host container.  
  Once the CLI thunk is a seperate and distinct component, the next two goals,
  may occur in parallel;
  * Abstract the Apache httpd request model as it's own CLI implementation, 
    allowing authors to handle native httpd requests without the Microsoft
    specific ASP.NET model.
  * Build alternate CLI thunks to other engines such as mono, to allow CLI 
    code to run on other platforms using the native Apache request model. 
  This goal allows CLI developers, to use tools such as C# to develop
  Apache-based solutions using alternate CLI hosting environments such
  as mono, without infringing on the claims of Microsoft which may inhibit
  ASP.NET-based solutions on non-Windows operating systems.
  !!! Project info
  * The Apache httpd PMC will own this httpd CLI subproject, and this subproject
    will follow the Apache httpd PMC's direction.  Significant contributors to
    this sub-project (e.g. 6 months of sustained contribution) will be proposed 
    for Apache httpd PMC membership.
  * The CLI sub-project's modules will be available under seperate downloads,
    and are not envisioned to become part of a 'stock' httpd distribution.
