FastCGI management can now be met by php-fpm, exactly what fastcgi.txt was going for.

Ideas for the students for "GSoC08 for lighttpd"

Jan * implement bayeux (cometd protocol) as described in [http://blog.lighttpd.net/articles/2006/11/27/comet-meets-mod_mailbox mod_mailbox] * implement a scoreboard to make server.max-workers a clean approach * improve the lighttpd-angel to integrate nicely with supervise and runit for graceful restarts * for 1.5.0 * streaming upload and chunked encoding for uploads * scalability testing for 1.5.x and its threaded backends on large-scale hardware Fernando * restructure the virtual hosting system so it can accept different sources without need to implement different modules, by unifying mod_evhost, mod_mysql_vhost, mod_simple_vhost (and also adding LUA vhost) * allow LUA (through mod_magnet) to change the FastCGI backend, allowing virtual hosts to easily switch application backends * study, document and implement the best way for virtual hosting (using lighttpd) using only one lighttpd process but obeying the need for permissions per domain. Kevin Worthington * improve (or overhaul) the documentation for building the 1.5 branch on Windows * continue work on the 1.5 branch to make Windows builds seamless * (these are just suggestions, and I am certainly not qualified to perform either of the above ideas.) Jomu * Make mod_fastcgi multiplex requests over same connection, IE exploit CONN_MPX Unassigned * SNI support and maybe http://rfc.net/rfc2817.html * IDN support * error_log per virtual domain * what definitely is needed is a facility to easily load a list of ip-addresses that will be blocked - dynamically, of course, without manual restartig the server -
to handle evil spiders, DOS etc. Every webmaster needs this. * (Apache .htaccess compatibility) - implement -f & -d from mod_rewrite * mod_wsgi - a module geared towards wsgi [http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0333/], ala mod_wsgi for apache [http://code.google.com/p/modwsgi/] and nginx [http://wiki.codemongers.com/NginxNgxWSGIModule]
