Subject [jira] Commented: (MODPYTHON-74) Add a WSGI handler to support WSGI-based frameworks
Date Wed, 14 Jun 2006 10:46:33 GMT

Graham Dumpleton commented on MODPYTHON-74:

For the record and as I have mentioned on the mailing list:


I don't believe that a mod_python.wsgi should be added to mod_python core package.

The primary reason is even if that is done, people will still keep asking where they can get
a copy of it which will work with older versions of mod_python from 2.7 through 3.2. Further,
changes to it will be dependent on release cycles of mod_python which at the moment are infrequent.
The latter would be an issue where people expect new wsgi optional component layers to be
added based on how wsgi is evolving and in general if problems need to be fixed. Finally,
it is an extra burden that the core mod_python developers don't need, there being enough to
do already.

What is needed is for someone distinct from the current mod_python developers to really take
onwnership of it and create a project for it on SourceForge or elsewhere. Actual discussion
of development and maintenance can still be done on the mod_python mailing lists and I am
sure current mod_python developers/users would freely contribute ideas on how to implement
it the best way.

Most importantly, if a separate project, it can be made to work for and be available for any
version of mod_python and not be constrained by release cycles of mod_python. That it will
work for all versions of mod_python would be important as it will make it most widely portable.
