Date Tue, 18 Nov 2008 14:32:20 GMT
We have a bunch of registry/CGI tools that exec external apps, including
Autosys CLI tools and CVS.  The problem is that, whereas in 1.3 the
environment was passed to the spawned process, in 2.0, that's not the

We had to make use of Env::C and the Apache2::SubRequest mods to allow
us to successfully port these tools.

Not much is made of it in the docs, but it was a huge issue for us.
