Now that 2.1 has been out for almost 2 weeks and we have seen no
problems, it is time to start thinking about future enhancements. The
following are on our list:
- make WebDAV a run-time configuration directive rather than a
combination of compile and run-time (a bit like what we did with the
logging a while ago). This would also eliminate the xHTTP directive.
- allow Pound to reply to errors with user-defined HTML pages rather
than text messages.
- rewrite the Destination header to correctly support WebDAV COPY and
MOVE directives (necessary for Subversion).
- add a compile-time switch to allow disabling of non-essential error
messages (such as when a client closes the connection prematurely).
- add an emergency back-end directive (hot back-up): a back-end that is
used only when all other back-ends are dead and stops being used when
any of the others is reactivated.
Please post additional suggestions here and we'll try to add them to the
