I'd like to submit a small patch to Pound for inclusion in a future
While using Pound-2.3.2 as an SSL front end for Mongrel, I ran into an
issue where by Mongrel's HTTP parser strictly interprets headers and
returns a 500 error while parsing the X-SSL-certificate header. This
error is described in the Mongrel mailing list thread, located at:
I don't believe the Fix to Mongrel that Zed mentioned in the above
thread ever made it into the code, as Mongrel still only parses the
first line of the multiline header.
In any event, a single line encoding of the PEM certificate is still
valid, and will probably play nicer with other HTTP servers as well.
Please let me know if you'd like to keep the existing behavior, at
which point I'll try and patch Mongrel to accept the multiple line X-
