1- I had no way to test lighttpd outside of localhost, short of asking for people to test a dialup server, which i didn't want to do. I just assumed that anyone who found a problem with it would post here and then we could work it out...this is why it's in "testing" =o)
In any case, I doubt lighttpd will be any different than monkey when it comes to using available ports. You may have to open the port yourself? Maybe a thread specifically for that task is needed.
2- No. Any external software will remain optional and separate, as is the norm for Unix systems. This practice is not strictly followed in some cases in DSL, due to the work involved in getting some packages installed on a modular system like DSL, but for most software it is still a better idea to provide one tool for one task. Any messageboard/wiki/etc software would be made available as a separate myDSL, if at all.
