Contributors looking for a mission:
* Just do an egrep on "TODO" or "XXX" in the source.
* Review the bug database at:
* Review the "PatchAvailable" bugs in the bug database:
After testing, you can append a comment saying "Reviewed and tested".
* Open bugs in the bug database.
* Forward binary compatibility is expected of Apache 2.2.x releases, such
that no MMN major number changes will occur. Such changes can only be
made in the trunk.
* All commits to branches/2.2.x must be reflected in SVN trunk,
as well, if they apply. Logical progression is commit to trunk,
get feedback and votes on list or in STATUS, then merge into
branches/2.2.x, as applicable.
[ start all new proposals below, under PATCHES PROPOSED. ]
[ New proposals should be added at the end of the list ]
* unixd: set suexec_enabled correctly when httpd is run by non-root
PR 42175
Trunk Patch:
2.2.x Patch:
+1: niq
-0: wrowe; Please refer to man 'access' BUGS section about linux 2.4
vs 2.6 kernels, potentially a suspect test for root.
sf: Couldn't the linux 2.4 bug be worked around by calling access
twice? Once with R_OK and once with X_OK.
* core: Support wildcards in both the directory and file components of
the path specified by the Include directive.
Trunk patch:
2.2.x patch:
Submitted by: minfrin, poirier
+1: minfrin
* support/htcacheclean: Teach it how to write a pid file (modelled on
httpd's writing of a pid file) so that it becomes possible to run
more than one instance of htcacheclean on the same machine.
Trunk patch:
2.2.x patch:
+1: minfrin, sf
* srclib/pcre and vendor/pcre
update to pcre-7.8
outcome: remove from trunk, leave alone in branches/2.2.x and branches/2.0.x
* core, authn/z: Avoid calling access control hooks for internal requests
with configurations which match those of initial request. Revert to
original behaviour (call access control hooks for internal requests
with URIs different from initial request) if any access control hooks or
providers are not registered as permitting this optimization.
Introduce wrappers for access control hook and provider registration
which can accept additional mode and flag data. Convert common
provider version strings to macros.
The core purpose of this pile of patches is to avoid unnecessary
authn/z hooks when a single request spawns large numbers of internal
requests to which an identical set of httpd configurations apply.
This permits modules such as mod_authn_dbd and mod_dav to work together
Because certain external modules such as mod_authz_svn rely on the old
behaviour, this optimization can be made only when all authn/z hooks and
providers are registered with the appropriate flag.
It would be excellent if Windows and NetWare people could ensure this
builds correctly.
In particular, mod_auth.h must be included into request.c and I've left
mod_auth.h under modules/aaa rather than try to replicate wrowe's work
in trunk moving all the include files around.
I'm open to suggestions that this remain in trunk only, but in that case,
it would be very helpful to know whether most people expect a 2.4 branch
or just a 3.0 branch to be next. If 3.0, some of the backwards
compatibility work could potentially be ditched.
Trunk version of patches: (trunk MMN bump) (reverted by r659160)
Backport version for 2.2.x of patch:
+1: chrisd
-0: jim (would prefer to see in 2.4, and to push 2.4 out)
* beos MPM: Create pmain pool and run modules' child_init hooks when
entering ap_mpm_run(), then destroy pmain when exiting ap_mpm_run().
Otherwise modules' child_init hooks appear to never be executed.
Also, destroying pmain ensures that cleanups registered in modules'
child_init hooks are performed (e.g., mod_log_config and mod_dbd).
Trunk version of patch:
2.2.x version of patch:
+0: chrisd (abstaining; unable to test)
* PKCS#7: backport PCKS#7 patches from trunk.
+1 ben
jerenkrantz: What's the revision number to backport?
wrowe asks: ditto jerenkrantz
sctemme: svn blame suggests r424707
rpluem: Digging through the history suggests that
need to be added to this. See also
and follow ups for more details.
* mod_dir: add FallbackResource directive
PR 47184
Trunk patch:
2.2.x patch:
(identical but for offsets, but patch failed on trunk version)
plus docs patch from r795450
+1: niq
+1: rbowen - After much debate on IRC, we've agreed on FallbackResource as being the right name for this.
* prefork MPM: simple patch to enable mod_privileges.
trunk: N/A (this patch substitutes for the availability of
drop_privileges hook).
2.2.x patch:
+1: niq
