---------------------------------------------------

The mod_perl PMC dedicates this release of mod_perl to Randy Kobes, who
passed away in September 2010. Randy was a member of the mod_perl project
management committee and a co-author of the mod_perl Developer's Cookbook.
His work helped many Windows mod_perl users. His work with ppm files, and
Win32 perl users will be sorely missed. He was kind, bright, and always
willing to lend a hand on the mod_perl user's list.
