-- Users --

The mod_perl users list is quiet, with a few bug reports and user questions.
nothing noteworthy has happened since the last report.


-- PMC --

The PMC has discussed the release process and would like to modify the release
process. This, however, would be against existing release rules at the ASF. We
have discussed a possible motion for the board to create an exception for some
of the perl subprojects.

Currently, a mod_perl-2.x release is made up of mod_perl itself, Apache-Test,
Apache-Reload, Apache-SizeLimit and Apache-DBI. The PMC stil feels that these
sub-modules need to be bundled as part of the mod_perl release, to provide users
with a useful, self-contained package.

However, since each of these sub-modules is a project in itself, releasing each
of them requires a vote. So, for a typical release, the release manager has to
create distributions for 4 modules, and get these voted on _before_ the mod_perl
release itself can even start.

In the past, this was not a big issue with a lot of active developers, but
nowadays, these votes are much slower in coming around.

Instead, what we are suggesting is to allow us to keep each sub-module separate
in source-control, but treat a +1 vote on the assembled mod_perl release
(including all modules) to effectively imply a +1 vote on release each of the
sub-modules as well.

The current proposed text of such an exception is:

'The mod_perl PMC petitions the ASF board to exempt the
Apache::Sizelimit, Apache::Reload, Apache::DBI, and Apache::Reload
modules to skip over the normal release rules governing ASF project
releases and be released directly to CPAN.  With the large number of
sub-projects the mod_perl project has spawned, the number of votes to
do a major mod_perl release can reach 12, which is 4x as much as some
other ASF projects.  Apache::Test continues to have participation from
httpd core members, and as such is consistently able to get enough
votes for releases, and does not need this exemption.'

The PMC would like the board's opinion on this issue and help getting this
issue resolved.

The exception to the approved voting process doesn't appear to be needed. A single vote covering the release of multiple related perl modules should suffice. If there are any questions, please discuss on board@.

-- PMC --

there was a brief discussion over whether mod_perl properly marked
the proper incoming data fields (it probably does not) and whether
this behavior warrants a CVE report. the conclusion was that
while mod_perl may have a bug, it's not mod_perl proper that contains
a security vulnerability - the offending code (if there were any)
would be written by a user.

the PMC tossed around the idea of adding a new committer to the
project, but decided to wait just a bit longer and work with him
so he understands a bit more about how the project moves and what
committership means.

there has also been some conversation with Allison Randal about
the upcoming mod_perl 2.0 book to be published by Onyx Neon.  she
had questions regarding licensing the mod_perl 2.0 documentation
and giving back editorial changes to the online documentation.
Cliff Schmidt was included in the conversation but remained silent,
but as far as I can tell everything Allison is doing seems to
be in line with the ASF license (and she's more aware of what the
license means than I am) so, short of official ASF legal counsel
guidance, I think she's fine to, in essence, put in hard-copy
the documentation anyone can find online.

-- mod_perl 1.0 --

The mod_perl 1.x is a maintenance track designed to work with httpd
1.3.x.

It was an exciting quarter for mod_perl 1.x, as the first and only
official security vulnerability for mod_perl was reported.

 http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-1349

The mod_perl 1.x svn repository was patched within hours of the
initial report, with a full release available in under a week.
All in all, things were handled very well, and the initial
impressions of the severity of the vulnerability turned out to
be far beyond the actual severity once things were properly analyzed.

spun off into its own repository and marked its first release as an
independent distribution.

Philip was also added to the perl PMC.

Perrin Harkins was able to provide a brief overview of the mod_perl

-- Development --

mod_perl continues to be an active and healthy development community.
We added a new committer this quarter - Philip Gollucci - who
has shown strong dedication to mod_perl, and other related projects
such as httpd-apreq, as well as the ability to integrate seamlessly
with our development process.

Other than that, bugs are found, bugs are fixed, development moves
forward as usual.


-- Users --

The mod_perl users list is, as always, thriving.

The release of 2.0.0 was greatly anticipated but seems to have
affected our userbase only minimally - most httpd 2.0 users had
migrated their codebase using pre-releases and worked out the
kinks beforehand.  In general, users continue to associate
mod_perl with quality, robust code, and are simply pleased to
have a 2.0.0 release to show to their employers.

On an interesting note, the ASF's incoming mail service is being
handled by mod_perl 2.0 and Apache::Qpsmtpd.  Prior to switching
to mod_perl 2.0 the services were handled usign qpsmtpd-forkserver
and were running continuous load averages > 70, with processes
hanging and segfaulting, resulting in service delays and outages.
Using mod_perl 2.0 and Apache::Qpsmptd the load averages are
closer to 0.7, the mail service is no longer lagging, and
everyone seems happy with the change.

All of us over in mod_perl land are just happy to be doing our
part to support the ASF.


-- PMC --

Philip Gollucci was added as a committer on July 14, 2005, further
expanding the number of active developers committed to mod_perl's
future.

It was noted that Infrastructure is using Apache::Qpsmtpd which has been very successful. Jim mentioned that the "lessons learned" were being folded into the Google SoC SMTP protocol module effort.

-- Development --

Development on mod_perl 2.0 and Apache-Test is moving at a healthy
pace.  Two mod_perl 2.0 release candidates (RC5 and RC6)
were released during this quarter, bringing us ever closer to
an official 2.0 designation.

RC5 was an especially important milestone, as it included
the implementation of namespace issues that were the subject
of heated discussions last quarter.  Due to outstanding development,
documentation, and mailing list efforts the migration to the
new namespace went off with very little user-land confusion
or complaints - far less than I think any of the active
developers anticipated.

Development is, once again, moving forward, proving that
mod_perl is an extremely healthy and uncommonly resilient
community within the ASF.


-- Users --

The mod_perl users list is, as always, thriving.

As mentioned in the Development section, the major issue
facing our userbase this quarter seems to have been met with
little confusion or complaints.  Most users who have adopted
the namespace-changing release (RC5) have reported minimal development
efforts required to upgrade, and have been very helpful to
the rest of the user community.

httpd-test, the parent repository for Apache-Test, was also was
converted from CVS to SVN this quarter.

The httpd and perl pmcs jointly decided to move control of the
Apache-Test codebase back under control of the perl pmc, leaving the
other parts of httpd-test (flood, specweb, and the perl-framework)
remain with the httpd pmc.

Apache-Test was migrated to its new home,
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/perl/Apache-Test on February 8, 2005.
additionally, two new mailing lists were created -
test-dev@perl.apache.org and test-commits@perl.apache.org - and a
request was made to marc.theaimsgroup.com to begin archiving these
lists.

-- Development --

Development on mod_perl 2.0 and Apache-Test is moving at a healthy
pace.  Official mod_perl 2.0 release candidates (RC1, RC2, and RC3)
were released during late December and early January.

-- Users --

The mod_perl users list is, as always, thriving.

Both the user (modperl@perl.apache.org) and development
(dev@perl.apache.org) mailing lists got a little heated in late
December and early January over a specific behavioral aspect of
mod_perl 2.0.  in an attempt to settle the community down, the
mod_perl PMC prepared a written statement explaining our commitment to
mod_perl users and promising a well vetted resolution.

internals, has been excellent. mod_perl developers have
expressed the wish that their relationship with httpd-dev
evolve in the same direction.
