Subject Re: [PATCH] fix apr-config with symlinks

No, the discussion below is the question;

  "Should release 0.9.x follow after 0.9.x-dev?  Or shouldn't
  we release 0.9.(x+1) following the efforts in 0.9.x-dev?"

The standing issue is this; libapr.so.0.9.2 points at one set of
functions.  The -dev flavors may be patched with new functions
in-progress, but if you use one of those functions and drop that
binary onto a machine with an "OFFICIAL" libapr.so.0.9.2 the
app won't start, because the old .2 version didn't include 
apr_foo_fn which will be in libapr.so.0.9.3 when it's released.

I would prefer the release number follows the -dev effort, and
so would a few others - but that throws off our current users.
The only way to begin this change, I believe, is to wait for 1.0.0
to begin using this schema, if we want to adopt it.

The original point of this thread, the patch, will be in 0.9.3, since
0.9.2 is done.
