Renamed Boas/SMP to Hydra.

1 This is Hydra, a modification of Boa, which supports multiple threads of
2 execution. Boa is a high performance web server for Unix-alike computers,
3 covered by the Gnu General Public License. This modification is based on
4 Boa version 0.94.13, and is currently of alpha quality.
6 Why Hydra? Well, Hydra is a many headed serpent in Greek Mythology, and
7 seemed to resemble fine a multi-threaded Boa. An interesting feature of
8 Hydra is that head, when cut off was replaced by two others. This was not
9 duplicated in Hydra's threads!
12 About Boa:
14 Boa was created in 1991 by Paul Phillips <paulp@go2net.com>. It is being
15 maintained and enhanced by Larry Doolittle <ldoolitt@boa.org>
16 and Jon Nelson <jnelson@boa.org>.
