mod_ftp is an FTP protocol module for Apache 2.0 and 2.2. Incubating since: 2005-08-06 Mentor: Jim Jagielski Additions to the PPMC: None Additions to the committer roster: None Recent activity has been around tying up the loose ends for graduation. Also significant work has been done in porting to the latest rev of APR, to allow for building against 2.2. More work is required on this front, but this should not affect graduation. Documentation has undergone serious improvement, both in the form of normal httpd server docs as well as traditional README-type docs.
Work is progressing on updating the build system so that it is possible to have it folded right into the 2.2.x or trunk version of httpd. The httpd PMC is being contacted to determine where the module should go, since there is currently discussion and debate on the concept of module "sub-projects" with httpd. We have an offer from Noirin Plunkett to convert the current docs to the current httpd format. This is also something that should be done before graduation. In hindsite, the mod_ftp podling should have been in place just to do the IP vetting, in which case it would have graduated long ago (this is how it would have been done if submitted today). Lesson learned.
Work is progressing on folding the mod_ftp build system into the normal, generic Apache 2 build environment. Additional logging and debugging were added to the present codebase. Creation of the test suite is also continuing.
The infrastructure work has been completed: mailing lists and SVN repos have been requested and created. The IP clearances for the module codebase have been received and filed, and the source code has been imported into the mod_ftp SVN repo. Work has started on changing the build environment to a more "normal" ASF module setup.
