(CGI) protocol. It is a standard for applications to interface with
HTTP servers. It is similar to FastCGI but is designed to be easier to
Included in this package is mod_scgi, an Apache module that implements
the client side of the protocol. There is also a a Python package
called scgi which implements the server side of the protocol.
Changes in version 0.5
* Rewrite most of the scgi_server parent code. Drop the table of
busy children and the shared pipe between the parent and children.
Instead, the children write a byte on the Unix domain pipe when they
are ready for a request. In the process, fix a bug that caused the
parent to wait until all the children were ready before delegating a
request (found by Changjune Kim).
* Pass REMOTE_USER to SCGI servers (patch from Hamish Lawson).
