Subject: Re: [Webware-devel] Anyone know Apache 2.X internals?
Is it possible to build a test case that exercises the proper behavior? :-)

looking over the mod_webkit code for Apache 2?
Today I was looking through the code for mod_webkit for Apache 2.X and I
found what looked like a fairly obvious bug in the
transact_with_app_server() function. I think it would possibly cause
mod_webkit to repeatedly attempt to connect with the appserver when it
wasn't supposed to. We have occasionally seen this happen on our servers,
which is why I was looking at the code in the first place.
I've fixed the code to the best of my knowledge and checked in the fix to
CVS, and tested, but I get the feeling that the code could use a 2nd pair of
eyeballs. Preferably someone who has experience with the Apache APIs,
because that's all Greek to me. I wouldn't be surprised if there were bugs
in the usage of the Apache API's because they are quite complicated.
(Note that I'm only referring to the Apache 2 mod_webkit -- Apache 1.3 uses
a totally different code base.)
