    Description: [Perl-aware FastCGI daemon]
 FCGI::Daemon is a small FastCGI server for use as fcgiwrap alternative with
 nginx web server. It is enforcing RLIMITs and running unmodified
 perl applications with persistent interpreter like mod_perl.
 Unlike fcgiwrap, FCGI-Daemon correctly passing STDERR output to web server.

Is this software actually nginx-specific in some way?
There are plenty of other popular web servers which support fastcgi...

Does "like mod_perl" mean that it implements the mod_perl API?

While this is nice, and I plan to use this software myself, is this
something worth being explained in the package description?

No, it is not really specific to nginx, however as far as I know it
was only tested with nginx.
It should be as good as fcgiwrap with servers other than nginx.

I'm a bit sceptical to your "plenty". It is pretty hard to find easy
to use and lightweight and working ones and in Debian.
I know no alternative to this package. (I confess, I am an upstream
and I wrote it for reason.)

No, it doesn't implement mod_perl API. As it stated in description it
meant for use with unmodified CGI scripts written in Perl.
Like awstats or ikiwiki or some not so popular or home-made ones which
can't run well in mod_perl.
FCGI::Daemon might be good for scripts unaware of mod_perl.

There is a substantial improvement in speed if CGI script executed by
persistent interpreter - in some cases it can be several times faster.
Also it increases worker capacity.

Sorry, if I didn't make it clear enough.
I think it emphasizes all important things but please let me know what
else you would like to see in description.

You already can evaluate debian package available from mentors (use
"dget -ux" command):

    http://mentors.debian.net/debian/pool/main/f/fcgi-daemon/fcgi-daemon_0.20111121-1.dsc

Feedback and sponsorship would be much apreciated.

All the best,
Dmitry.

Looks like I was confusing the functionality of this package with
spawn-fcgi.

CGI or fastcgi?

It is wrapping CGI as FastCGI.
nginx only understand FastCGI so this is the remedy.

This package is quite similar to fcgiwrap and it can be used as
replacement for fcgiwrap.

But there are some differences from fcgiwrap:

fcgi-daemon comes with debconf interface for easy reconfiguration,
it can interpret perl-CGI scripts in persistent manner,
it can detect memory leaks and it use RLIMITs.

Cheers,
Dmitry.

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of fcgi-daemon back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 12 months.

If you are still interested in adopting fcgi-daemon, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 650198 ITP: fcgi-daemon -- Perl-aware FastCGI daemon
 owner 650198 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <650198@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
