Eunuchs.org: Mohawk 0.1 [Apache server configuration GUI]

"Welcome to the next generation of TkApache... Mohawk! Mohawk is the next evolutionary step of TkApache in that it will provide a much better platform for future features. Completely re-written from the ground up in C, using the GTK+/GNOME GUI, it's much faster than Perl/Tk and will allow more flexibility and new features."

"Mohawk is being designed from the ground-up to support not only an individual, simple Apache server configuration - not just one with virtual hosts - but both of these cases across multiple remote or local servers. ... This is accomplished via authenticated, encrypted socket communications between Mohawk and Mohawk-agents running on each server. Mutliple server instances on the same box can be handled by multiple instances of the Mohawk-agent on different ports (or just a smarter agent)."

"Basically, there's a lot to be done. I'll be working up a spreadsheet of sorts that shows all the areas and their status. ...there's really not too much to download just yet, save for the GUI code itself and the basic framework of Mohawk. I'll release the whole thing in a few days - but in the meantime, you can download the first binary."
