this week was a pretty decent one...
yesterday, I finally managed to install movable type on my dev box, giving me a place to log my activities. I think the name, drivel, speaks for itself. anyway, highlights from the week:
o massive changes to the stacked handler mechanism in mod_perl 2 (which I already mentioned here
o added some docs
for passing cookies on redirects via Registry.
o spent some time tracking down a strange bug with perl-5.8.1-RC4 and bleedperl. turns out it wasn't perl's fault
. I hate it when the fix is simple and right in front of you, but you don't see it for hours and hours.
o I send a patches
to httpd-dev, to which nobody replied. hmph - that's the second one
in as many weeks that have gotten no response. the older one I think is pretty important (for some definition of important), at least for mod_perl people who like to override core directives like I do. in fact, I needed that exact functionality when writing
. this week's is the result of a longish (and continuing) conversation
about getting mpm information into Apache-Test.
o speaking of Apache-Test, Stas was (rightly) complaining about users and bug reports that are not reproducable, so yesterday I created an Apache-Test skeleton tarball
that can be easily tweaked. I even used it to try and reproduce a bug in RegistryPrefork
but I couldn't (though the EU could).
all in all, a more productive week than last, though it looks pretty sparse when written down...
