>          Components: c
>    Affects Versions: 1.6.1
>            Reporter: Lucas Martin-King

> I notice that avro_value_set_string() takes in a char *, not a const char *, and some
of the the lower level functions it uses do take a const char *.
> I would presume that the library does not modify user input string data.
> Can we fix this by maintaining const char * all the way up to the user API?
