Subject RE: [PROPOSAL] Release the HEAD of j-t as Tomcat 3.3.2
Date Tue, 10 Feb 2004 13:46:55 GMT
+1 for the plan.

Removing "src/native" from the source distribution won't be a
problem.  I would also be in favor of deleting the
src/native/mod_jk from the CVS tree since this was moved long
ago to jakarta-tomcat-connectors.  If someone really wants
that old version, they can grab an old source distribution
or checkout the "tomcat_331_final" tag from CVS.  For historical
reasons, we should probably keep the src/native/jserv since
it doesn't exist elsewhere.

As for the character encoding changes, it looks like the
minimum that avoids regression would be to modify
org.apache.tomcat.core.Request to call both setEncoding()
and setQueryStringEncoding() on the Parameters object.  However,
this would not be supportive of the W3C standard.  To support
that, the new connector properties that were added to Tomcat 4
and 5 would need to be supported.  I'm +0 for doing that since
I think the standard is a bit flawed when applied to HTTP, thanks
largely to the query string issue.  I'll volunteer to include the
new properties if this is desired by others.

Also, I have karma for adding versions to Bugzilla, so I'll
volunteer to handle that as well.

Cheers,
Larry
