Regarding the subdomain patent crap:|
Can somebody do some research for me?
-- What version/date did Apache get its support for "ServerAlias *.foo.com". Who committed it? Any mailing list post from them saying who/what they made it for?
-- Who added wildcard support to bind? When I first tried it out of the blue (never saw docs for it), I remember somebody telling me: "Oooh! That must be new!" So that makes me think it hasn't always been there? Again, who committed, when, and why?
-- URLs to people automatically generating subdomains for users before August 1999. (ml.org is from August 1995... anybody else?)
