Subject: Mongrel for 1.9, for real?
Date: Mon, 29 Jun 2009 01:46:38 -0300	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <71166b3b0906282146n647d9c09ke18f59204e01f76e@mail.gmail.com> (raw)

Hey Guys,

Heads up on this...

I want to pursue release an updated Mongrel gem that can compile and
run under Windows Ruby 1.8 and 1.9

This is due the preview1 versions of the installer just released:

http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.ruby/browse_thread/thread/c38255aacd68d6dc

For that purpose, 1.1.5 needs to be updated:

- consider MinGW as valid platform (it doesn't)
- change RSTRING macros

Now, I've struggled all day trying to figure out from where I should
get all the pieces to move forward, all without success.

Patched several Rakefiles to get extensions build, but tests fails.
Patched extension to get Ruby 1.9, and tests stall.

Cannot release a Gem for Windows since Echoe hook itself and don't let
rake-compiler tasks run well.

So: Should I consider Mongrel (and fauna/mongrel) repository dead and
move forward?

Mongrel is still being actively used by MANY users, even some moved to
Passenger, or Thin, Mongrel is still an excellent option.

I just want the "team" answer so I decide to invest time on getting
that fixed or invest time on getting "another project inspired by
Mongrel" build properly on Windows.

Please let me know as soon as possible in your agenda, since I'm
expecting lot of reports of failures when using the preview1
installers.

Thanks in advance for the feedback and your time.

Regards,
--
