Hello Wojciech,

Can you provide more details and scope for:
>        - ASP.NET 4.5 Async Stack - In this task should be implemented
> whole

The details are here:


We are not quite sure what this involves, but we know that the current
synchronous pipeline would need to be rewritten to accomodate user code
using "await".   Once user code in a page uses await, it means that the
container code that runs it needs to use await.   And you can trace this
all the way back up to HttpApplication and the Pipeline() method.

The Pipeline() method in HttpApplication uses a bit of a precursor to
async, but it is only used for the pre and post hooks handlers, not for the
page itself.   That one was executed synchronously.

My suggestion is to keep that intact, while we plug a new version that
would be async ready.

Async Stack? Do you have a minimum set of requirements for this task?

Check that page, we can determine that only a handful of things can be done
during the summer, and we can adjust the task to merely do a few things.
