of the 14 bugs i asked for feedback on last week, all but 4 have
been applied.  those four are:

 > 0000004 03-16-05 patch for httpd to support PHP CGI mode
 >     [ questionable PHP-specific CGI variable.  see http://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=28227 ]

i really think this is a php bug, and other webserver maintainers seem
to think so too.

 > 0000094 03-16-05 Busybox 'make install' does not respect PREFIX when using O=
 >     [ see also bug #3 -- if everything's exported, why is this needed? ]

i couldn't get "O=/some/where/else" to work for me at all, so i certainly
can't tell if this patch will improve anything.

 > 0000115 03-25-05 ifenslave
 >     [ new applet ]

i took the tarball of separate diffs that were submitted and created a
single patch against current svn.  but the code has not been busybox'ed
at all -- no use of libbb, no trimming of huge usage and version strings,
etc.  it sure seems like it should get a smaller before being applied.

 > 0000132 03-16-05 Implement fork using longjmp
 >     [ somewhat controversial, i recall... ]

setting this aside, as requested by shaun.

i'll post another list of bugs i'll be considering, probably sometime
next week.

(vodz -- i still can't get at your new getopt and ls code on your
ftp server.)
