Simon, et. al.,
FastCGI is a user-community support library and application. The developer (Rob
Saccoccio) who built the current version, and was providing support on the list,
worked for the development company that I ran many moons ago.
Unfortunately, we are not a development company anymore, so our production needs
are met by the Apache 1.3 implementation.
A few of us have tried to pitch in from time to time, but since nobody is doing
any direct work with FastCGI or Apache 2.X anymore, it's hard to contribute
meaningfully. We were hoping that other members of the community would step up
to help out, but sadly there is insufficient momentum or interest from anyone up
to this point.
I think FastCGI is a great technology and I would love to see it grow and
prosper. If there's anyone out there who wants to pitch in and help out, that
would be great. If not, then ultimately the technology will fade away.
