--------------------------------------------

             Summary: Participation in Code Signing by HTTP Server project
                 Key: INFRA-11118
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-11118
             Project: Infrastructure
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Codesigning
            Reporter: William A. Rowe, Jr.


Raising a ticket to express interest...

For some time, the value of an ASF shipping Windows httpd binary has been negligible, as various
lgpl and gpl components could be combined by other parties and assembled as a more complete
version of httpd.  It has been a few years since the httpd project has shipped Windows binaries.

With the introduction of code signing, this becomes interesting once again for httpd to ship
what are the official sources built for Windows, particularly with the introduction of a persistent
runtime in Visual C 14.  I'm willing to take this on if the Code signing service agreement
can be extended.

Note that an httpd 2.4 package consists of about 48 programs and dynamic libraries, and some
108 modules.  Internal to the installer there is a script rewriting binary and the install
package itself, for a total of soon to be 160 signed objects per release.  Releases of 2.4
occur about 4 times a year with releases of the legacy package (2.2 at present) which occur
2 times a year.

Given the number of components, some batch submission mechanism is required to consider this
effort.

Please provide feedback about the commitment to renewing the Symantec service, and I would
like to participate in this offering, going forwards, if the commitment is there.
