I have reactivated the draft of the CGI specification, based
upon drtr's draft from last year plus some changes (version
change to CGI/1.2, additional control over script termination,
...).  The announcement is attached.

Some additional aspects:

 o An HTML version of the draft (as well as a text version) is
   available at <http://Web.Golux.Com/coar/cgi/>
 o A Majordomo mailing list dedicated to discussing the spec
   has been set up; to subscribe, send a message to
   <cgi-wg-request@Golux.Com> with the single word "subscribe"
   in the BODY (not the subject!) of the message
 o I would like to see the spec eventually evolve into an
   informational RFC

	Title		: The WWW Common Gateway Interface: Version 1.2

The Common Gateway Interface (CGI) is a simple interface for running
external programs, software or gateways under an information server in
a platform-independent manner. Currently, the supported information
servers are HTTP servers.

The interface has been in use by the World-Wide Web since 1993. This
specification defines the interface known as 'CGI/1.2', which is an
extension of the 'CGI/1.1' interface developed and documented at the
U.S. National Centre for Supercomputing Applications [NCSA-CGI].  This
document also defines the use of the CGI/1.2 interface on the Unix(R)
and AmigaDOS(tm) systems.

NOTE:	The mail server at ds.internic.net can return the document in
	MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
	feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
	command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
	a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
	exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
	"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
	up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
	how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
