Subject Re: svn commit: r376501 - /apr/apr/branches/1.2.x/test/testuser.c
Date Fri, 10 Feb 2006 20:00:37 GMT

   I will mask this test ndef WIN32 for versions prior to 1.3.0, I agree
we won't be changing semantics and surrender to the fact that we failed
to make a portable library.

   I am removing ALL per-platform tests on 1.3.0 forward that introspect
non-apr flags to determine OS behavior.  Those tests *PROVE* non-portability
and therefore indicate errors in our API which must be addressed.

   In a portability library, every condition that indicates a feature is not
supported needs to be reflected in a constant, or in an ENOTIMPL result from
invoking the unsupported function or feature.

   If our test framework *works*, it is using strictly the apr behavior to
prove or disprove the validitity of the apr's API and feature set.  Anything
else illustrates bad examples to our user/developers who then follow our lead.

   Does this strike you as reasonable, moving -forwards-, and ignoring the
issue in 1.2.x and prior?
