Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 46578] New: Flawed header
Date Wed, 21 Jan 2009 20:26:01 GMT

           Summary: Flawed header
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.3-HEAD
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Core

The header file ap_config_auto.h is a bit flawed. It defines PACKAGE_NAME and
PACKAGE_VERSION, and similar constants. If one would like to compile their own
module, one could write something like:

#include <config.h>
#include <httpd.h>
#include <http_config.h>
#include <http_protocol.h>
#include <ap_config.h>

This would give compiler warnings (not errors) about PACKAGE_NAME being
re-defined. This is a bit sloppy and certainly not necessary. Hardly any C
program defines PACKAGE_NAME and similar constants outside config.h, and header
files should certainly not re-define them.

It would be better to have this in ap_config_auto.h:


So it's not very critical, but it's also not nice to cause warnings that need
not be caused.
