Subject [discuss] Releasing pre-release APR
Date Mon, 21 Dec 2009 18:50:02 GMT
In light of current events, here's a policy statement I'd like to propose
for consideration (just a discussion item at this point);

  The APR project strongly discourages any release of the APR software
  with modifications of the API.  This includes shipping ".0-dev" pre
  release source code which has not yet been adopted in an official APR
  release.  Any such use is in violation of the Apache APR trademark.

  Private releases which include API modifications must not use the name
  Apache APR and must not use the same publicly installed library and header
  file names, or must not be installed or configured to be installed to the
  platform-specific, conventional shared paths such as /usr/bin/, /usr/include,
  %windir%\system32 etc.  Nothing in this policy precludes the application
  of patches or bug fixes conforming to the released API, although the Apache
  APR project strongly encourages authors to submit such fixes to the project.

  Snapshots of the current development trees are available for a short period
  of time at http://svn.apache.org/snapshots/, these are not provided for
  redistribution.  Developers are encouraged to test against these snapshots
  or the SVN development tree, propose API enhancements and patches to the
  project, and participate in the API discussion.  See the guidelines at;
  http://apr.apache.org/patches.html for additional details.
