Subject RC1 release: Updating status page
Date Sat, 24 Jan 2015 13:14:40 GMT
Steve, is it a good idea (and are you able to do that?) to add a line to http://perl.apache.org/download/index.html
saying that RC1 has been released and that the build supports Apache 2.4?
This will make people download the RC, and will increase testing by users.
It will also inform the users about the activity going on in the mod_perl project and motivate
them to keep on using it.

It's mostly a matter of testing, which I hope we'll get more of once
we have an RC1 out :-)

Some documentation updates are probably also required to cover the
changes made for httpd-2.4.

A couple of tests currently still fail on Windows, but we can add a
"Known Problems" note somewhere to cover that -- it shouldn't hold up
the release.

is without a doubt something you made a lot of enthusiastic programmers happy with and it
is something that cannot easily be ignored.
