A package was submitted to
This mail was sent to address@hidden, address@hidden

Saurav Mohapatra <address@hidden> described the package as follows:
License: gpl
Other License: 
Package: In Process Web Server in C
System name: ceti
This package does NOT want to apply for inclusion in the GNU project

I plan to develop a free open source lightweight in-process Web Server 
Component in C , that can be instantiated and used inside a program. The target 
Platforms are win32 and linux. The inspiration for this project is 
Jetty( which is a Java web server 
that can be used as a in-process as well as a stand alone server.

I plan to implement the project in three phases :

Phase I
a) Win 32 version of the Web Server.
b) Support for GET command
c) Definition of Custom URLs based on Handlers. e.g GET /Config might point to 
a Handler Method rather than an actual URL.
d) baseline support for HTTP/1.0
Phase II
a) support for POST
b) Linux Port
c) Support for HTTP/1.0

Phase III
a) Servlet Engine (Tentative)
b) Installation and Packaging details.

My motivation for this project is that even though there are a lot of free open 
source HTTP Client libraries, there are not many(at least i could not find any) 
HTTP Server Libraries.

The Final shape of the server should be as  a DLL or an so provided with an SDK 
for extending the Handlers.
