Subject: FastCGI is very much alive.


As an employee of Open Market and one of the main developerd of FastCGI,
I would like to put an end to the "Is FastCGI dead" question.  FastCGI 
is not dead, it's just been sleeping a bit lately due to other business 
commitments within Open Market.

The primary person that had been supporting the FastCGI mailing list
has been unavailable to respond to questions and the rest of us have
been focusing on the company's primary products which is why there
have been no replies lately from Open Market.

We apologize and hope people do not abandon FastCGI.  The truth of the
matter is that the FastCGI developer community has been mostly self
sufficient so we were not worried about our involvement lately.

We have a person starting shortly that will have FastCGI support as
her primary focus.  She will have a little bit of a ramp up but will
have access to the other developers here at Open Market to help her
come up to speed.

Hope this information is useful to all.
