My issue isn't with the loss of FCGI (although I know a few hosting companies that might be upset at that, perhaps you can scare them into funding its maintainence d8). It's with the way that there is 'a real issue' and a 'made up justification'. If there's noone around who can maintain it, then just say that. Don't say there's 'a better way', because I can guarantee you the people using FCGI are using it for a reason, and there isn't a "better way" for them. P.S. I can imagine a pretty big set of people running Zope via FCGI who are not running Apache.. I can also imagine that magical code fairies fight with magical code trolls to the death to decide what pieces of code stay and which pieces go. -- Andrew Milton [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
