2019-01-20www: admin-configurable CSS via "publicinbox.css"
Maybe we'll default to a dark theme to promote energy savings... See contrib/css/README for details
2018-02-07update copyrights for 2018
Using update-copyrights from gnulib While we're at it, use the SPDX identifier for AGPL-3.0+ to ease mechanical processing.
2016-07-02www: remove Plack::Request dependency entirely
Lighter and ever-so-slightly faster! Most importantly, this won't do non-obvious stuff behind our backs like trying to parse a POST request body for a query string param.
2016-05-23http: chunk in the server, not middleware
Since PSGI does not require Transfer-Encoding: chunked or Content-Length, we cannot expect random apps we host to chunk their responses. Thus, to improve interoperability, chunk at the HTTP layer like other PSGI servers do. I'm chosing a more syscall-intensive method (via multiple send(...MSG_MORE) for now to reduce copy + packet overhead.
2016-04-25split out NNTPD and HTTPD* modules
Hopefully this modularizes things a little and allows us to work on a combined super server to save RAM.
2016-03-31httpd: remove reference to callback during close
Avoid wasting memory and the risk of a potential reference cycles by dropping the callback ASAP.
2016-03-05httpd: remove unnecessary eval
We have per-middleware evals to deal with them being missing; no need to put an eval around the whole thing and use an extra level of indentation.
2016-03-03daemon: introduce host_with_port for identifying sockets
This allows us to share more code between daemons and avoids having to make additional syscalls for preparing REMOTE_HOST and REMOTE_PORT in the PSGI env in -httpd. This will also make supporting HTTP (and NNTP) over Unix sockets easier in a future commit.
2016-03-03daemon: avoid polluting the main package
We've distilled the daemon code into one public function ("run"), so avoid polluting the main namespace and just have users prefix with the full package name for this rarely-used class.
2016-03-01httpd: remove unneeded err and out fields from class
Vestigial pieces from the nntpd code which aren't needed because the psgi env already has the "psgi.errors" key.
2016-03-01httpd: document pi-httpd.async as totally unstable
We'll have to use it some more before deciding it is a public interface. I do hope for it to be a usable public interface one day for other users.
2016-02-29favor procedural calls for most private functions
This makes for better compile-time checking and also helps document which calls are private for HTTP and NNTP. While we're at it, use IO::Handle::* functions procedurally, too, since we know we're working with native glob handles.
2016-02-28httpd: allow running if ReverseProxy is missing
Not everybody will be running this behind a ReverseProxy; but it's probably the likely configuration. Anyways, warn about this and also about Deflater being missing.
2016-02-27move executables to script/ directory
This seems to match more closely with what is expected of Perl packages based on how blib is used. Hopefully makes the top-level source tree less cluttered and things easier-to-find.
