Paul Phillips records his acknowledgments as follows:
Thanks to everyone in the WWW community, in general a great bunch of people. Special thanks to Clem Taylor
<email@example.com>, who provided invaluable feedback on many of my ideas, and offered good ones of his own. Also thanks to John Franks, author of wn, for writing what I believe is the best webserver out there.
Links to documents relevant to Boa development and usage. Incomplete, we're still working on this. NCSA has a decent http://hoohoo.ncsa.uiuc.edu/docs/Library.html page along these lines, too.
