Subject mod_jk 1.2.24 withdrawal?
Date Thu, 02 Aug 2007 13:03:36 GMT
I think the problem with JK 1.2.24 is big enough to release soon. I 
would also suggest to officially withdraw 1.2.24 from the download and 
web site (with a comment indicating the problem) so that people will not 
run into more complex problems related to the missing flush. Although 
we've got no indication, that there will be a security problem, the 
missing flushing can lead to undefined behaviour.

Users needed to wait for a post 1.2.23 update for 2.5 months, so 1-2 
more weeks will be OK.

Additionally the question is: should we include other fixes or strictly 
only 1.2.24 + this fix. If we remove 1.2.24 I think the other fixes 
listed below will be safe. I would propose to include them and run 
through the usual Quality check + release cycle, we've done a couple of 
times for JK.

r560736 (fuankg): additional defines in jk_globalh. if __GNUC__ is 
defined for WIN32 or Netware. This should enable gcc builds on these 
platforms. Looks like very low risk, because until now we don't support 
building with gcc on these platforms, so the change looks like it can't 
break anything.

r560739 (fuankg): Change in Netware Makefile for Apache 1.3. I think 
Günter knows best, if this should be released.

r560823 (rjung): changed pid_t print format detection for Solaris. 
Tested with gcc and cc for 32 Bit and 64 Bit build on Solaris Sparc. Not 
tested for Solaris x86, but until now I think we do not actively support 

r560831 (rjung): Fix nsapi crash with debug log during startup. Very 
local change, low risk.

r562085 (rjung): Fix 401 problem. That's the one we definitely need.

Outstanding changes:

fail on status

Improve nsapi shut down

nsapi and shm

For Netware nsapi now has a build dependency on shm although it doesn't 
use it. More generally, we need to check which way we should use shm for 
nsapi on which platform. I think the nsapi and general platforms 
considerations should not be done before 1.2.25, but everything else 
looks OK to me.
