Bug#397361: ITP: libscgi-rails-ruby -- SimpleCGI protocol implementation for Ruby on Rails

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

  Description     : SimpleCGI protocol implementation for Ruby on Rails
 SCGI Rails Runner is a complete implementation of the *Simple CGI*
 protocol for Ruby on Rails as specified by the
 http://python.ca/nas/scgi/protocol.txt specification. SCGI is similar
 to FastCGI except that it is much simpler to implement and is
 actively maintained by the original author. The primary advantages of
 SCGI over the current FastCGI are: 
  * Completely pure Ruby yet still quite fast when compared with
  * The core implementation (SCGI::Processor) is extensible for other
  * Systems other than Rails can use the library to implement their
    own versions. 
  * An extensive control mechanism to let you start, stop, restart,
    and reload even remotely. 
  * Cluster management using the scgi_cluster tool.
  * Configuration file based so you can set options and start from
    command line easily. 
  * Runs on nearly everything with initial support for Windows.
  * Restarts and stops are graceful, with redirects to a /busy.html
    page for clients during the shutdown phase. 
  * You can set a throttle and max connections setting to reduce the
    load an application puts on your system. 
 This package is part of the Ruby library extras, a supplement to Ruby's
 standard library.
