HTTPD PROXY STATUS:
Last modified at [$Date: 2001/06/13 17:58:43 $]

Release:

intended for 1.3/2.0 release date

httpd 1.3.x)

   Source for HTTP/1.1 mod_proxy is now available
    in httpd-proxy/module-1.0/ via CVS
   Note: this code now maintains binary compatibility

   first HTTP/1.1 support patch complete; available at
   http://dev.apache.org/dist/patches/apply_to_1.3.19/

   Current HTTP/1.1 patch at
   http://dev.apache.org/dist/patches/apply_to_1.3-current

httpd 2.0)

   work ongoing
   Graham's patches for httpd-2.0 committed

httpd 2.0+)

   email block diagrams exchanged, and clarified a little
   talk about these at ApacheCon AFA a new proxy and cache design
       got good feedback from Theo and Ian

RELEASE SHOWSTOPPERS:

a), b), c) below.

2.0

    * HTTP - currently almost almost works! (we are so close)

    At add times the following error is finding its way into the
    error log:

      [error] (32)Broken pipe: core_output_filter: writing data to the network

    It happens after the body send is complete - it looks like we
    are trying to send data after the request, but the browser
    has closed the connection.

   * problems with akamai proxies - under investigation

RELEASE NON-SHOWSTOPPERS BUT WOULD BE REAL NICE TO WRAP THESE UP:

1.3.x

    * Ronald Tschaler's patch to mod_proxy to allow other modules to
      set headers too (needed by mod_auth_digest)
        Message-ID: <199907080712.JAA28269@chill.innovation.ch>
        Status: TBD
    * announce to current-testers@ to get some looking at
    * possibly to fold this into a later release (1.3.20++?)
      currently being maintained as a separate code base + patch
    * Bill Rowe's suggested fix for Win32 - done
    * Kwindla Kramer's patches for downstream cache control
        Message-ID: <15089.34684.423523.700807@khk.allafrica.com>
        Status: under consideration
    * Luis Londono's mod_ssl post patch to fix up after mod_ssl installed
        Message-ID: <019801c0dca9$9e80aa70$448553d8@nisbic.com>
        Status: this needs to go to the mod_ssl guys

2.0

    * FTP: PORT does not work
      There is a problem with this proxy accepting connections from
      the remote ftp server. The connection is accepted, and the remote
      server sends data, but the proxy does not acknowledge the data.
      The default is PASV - so this isn't a trainsmash.

    * announce to current-testers@ to get some looking at

   * problems when streaming mp3 from live365.com, and audio stream dies
     and reconnects - we seem to be hanging on the stream close, since
     the client (iTunes) may not be actually closing the connection
     (not believed to be an HTTP proxy problem)

2.0+

    * none

Other known bugs that need fixing:

1.3.x

    * many PRs to be cleaned up

2.0

    * none

2.0+

    * none

Other features that need writing:

1.3.x

    * mod_rewrite and possibly mod_include cleanup

2.0

    * none

2.0+

    * none

Documentation that needs editing:

1.3.x

    * mod_proxy.html (needs a once-over)

2.0

    * mod_proxy.html

2.0+

    * none

Available Patches:

1.3.x

    * PR#3489 patch for NoCache/mod_rewrite problem

2.0

    * none

2.0+

    * none

Open Issues:

    * Eventual reintegration into httpd-2.0. The basic criteria are:
        a) The code compiles and runs as often as any code in the tree
        b) The functionality makes sense for an HTTP proxy
        c) There is an active maintainer who is or can become an ASF
           member.
    * announce to current-testers@ to get some looking at (1.3/2.0 both)
    * announce for inclusion vote and Graham commit privs
