Subject Re: Timetable for APR 1.5 release?
Date Tue, 29 Oct 2013 09:21:13 GMT
Just to verify what I should be testing - and - is it too late to get
something added for packaging?

I assume that for httpd-2.4.X that should build with only apr-1.5.X
(preferred), or with apr-1.4.some-minimum + apr-util-1.5.X

What I would like to add is the buildaix scripts - similar to what I did
for httpd, or at a minimum, the layout.AIX.

As apr has compiler dependancies (if you change complier you must rebuild
apr) I would prefer to have the build script that changes the package name
dependent on the compiler.

A nice start would be the AIX layout.
