Subject Re: svn commit: r602176 - /apr/apr/trunk/network_io/unix/sockaddr.c
Date Sat, 08 Dec 2007 00:44:08 GMT
Folks, looking for feedback.

The connection rec in httpd has our apparently-ipv4 addresses stored
as the local and remote host, but we tag these as APR_INET6 addresses.
This makes it very difficult to look things up later on.

I don't think there's a problem if we look up an unspecified or IPV4
form for that address, but in the case of calling up the very same
family we recorded, INET6, shouldn't apr_sockaddr_info_get still
work with that combination???

Otherwise, our truncation of the leading ::ffff: was a pretty foolish
thing to do :(

Let me know if anyone sees issues with the patch below, otherwise I'll
backport Monday.

Bill
