mod_ftpd is an FTP server module for Apache using the authentication system in Apache to provide anonymous or user-based FTP. Alternate chroot directories for users can be provided via a plugin system to check different data sources for the information. Currently a DBM and libdbi plugin are included. Limiting the number of users that can log into the system is also provided via a plugin system, so new limiting algorithms can be easily added in. Currently only a base limiter is provided which sets an overall cap to the each virtual server.
Spinneret is a structured storage engine that can be thought of as an extended tuple storage system. It takes the best aspects of relational, object, and hierarchical databases and throws away the dead weight associated with those technologies. The benefit of Spinneret is that its data model is incredibly flexible, allowing it to expose its underlying data in any number of ways. It operates similar to an object database, but without hard ties to an originating language, and can also behave like a relational database without the burden of complex joins.
The mission of the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) project is to create and maintain software libraries that provide a predictable and consistent interface to underlying platform- specific implementations. The primary goal is to provide an API to which software developers may code and be assured of predictable if not identical behaviour regardless of the platform on which their software is built, relieving them of the need to code special-case conditions to work around or take advantage of platform-specific deficiencies or features.
