I've downloaded, compiled, and installed 3.1.1b.  Everything with my 
application appears to function correctly.   However, I did
see a change with the initial message in my error log (sorry, I don't have 
the previous message).

Is the following line correct?  Why does it say -1 max processes?  With 
3.1.0a, it used to say "Creating 200 session mutexes"
[Wed Oct 15 15:02:20 2003] [notice] mod_python: Creating 50 session 
mutexes based on -1 max processes and 50 max threads

If you're not concerned, I'm not, but it is different, so I mention it.

I'm using the worker mpm
( Apache/2.0.47 (Unix) DAV/2 mod_ssl/2.0.47 OpenSSL/0.9.6b 
mod_python/3.1.1b Python/2.3 mod_fastcgi/2.4.0)
on Solaris
System = SunOS
Node = usatux29
Release = 5.8
KernelID = Generic_108528-13
Machine = sun4u
BusType = <unknown>
Serial = <unknown>
Users = <unknown>
OEM# = 0
Origin# = 1
NumCPU = 2

Here's the relevant httpd.conf ( need more?)  I know my worker config is 
probably whacked a little.
I'm trying to keep a small amount of children with a high thread count.
Timeout 300
KeepAlive On
MaxKeepAliveRequests 100
KeepAliveTimeout 15

<IfModule worker.c>
StartServers         3
MaxClients         200
MinSpareThreads     25
MaxSpareThreads     50 
ThreadsPerChild     50
MaxRequestsPerChild 500

Other than that one confusing error message, which may just be due to my 
ignorance of Apache, I had no issues.

I think I didn't make it clear in the last message:

In order for this release to be officially announced, at least a few
people on this list need to try it and send in a +1 indicating that it
worked on their system (along with some desciption of what their system
is). *Anyone* on this list can do this, you don't have to be an official
committer or anything of that sort.

Doing a test could probably take as little as 10 minutes, and I'd
encourage you to do it sooner than later.

Looking at the www.modpython.org log we've only had one download of the
tgz file so far, which isn't encouraging :-)
