Subject Re: cvs commit: apr STATUS
Date Fri, 01 Dec 2000 00:17:48 GMT
Given the mapping you list below, are you considering a tighter
formalization of the namespaces *within* APR? For example, all file
functions would be apr_file_* ?

I'm -0 on that, but some targeted renames (like the one below) would be a
Good Thing.

Cheers,
