Subject RE: [RELEASE CANDIDATE] Apache-Bootstrap 0.05 rc1
Date Mon, 26 Jan 2009 16:45:03 GMT

5.8.8, httpd 2.2.6, mp 2.0.5-dev

If you write or maintain modules that use both mod_perl1 and
mod_perl2, you may appreciate this module.  It is designed to take the
pain out of dual life-ing mod_perl based modules, and provides

in 2007 on this problem, and bugging gozer, geoff, and pgolluci about

Please download, test, and report back.  Version 0.04_02 has been on
CPAN for a while now, and the testers haven't really found any
failures IIRC, and there haven't been many changes to 0.05.  Thanks!
