Message-ID: <b6f68fc60904261812l5d63c2fco4e8cf08d04cee2b@mail.gmail.com> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <71166b3b0904261732j6d5c50fay3d05fdca7f4a6b6e-JsoAwUIsXosN+BqQ9rBEUg@public.gmane.org>

I think that's a good plan. Echoe has some rudimentary
cross-compilation (used for JRuby), but not for Mingw. Your way is
better.

My plan is as so:

Gossamer + Rack launch script + some optimizations/bugfixes + Ruby 1.9
compat = more or less Mongrel 2.0.

This puts you in a tough spot, but it's probably best to branch off
Gossamer and let me forward-port whatever is missing. The 1.x branches
are effectively dead, except for a Ruby 1.9 compat update (v1.1.6).

I promise to get to this every weekend, and don't, so I'll stop
promising. I may be able to squeeze some time out of work to spend on
it.
