Subject Re: [PATCH] friendlier MODULE_MAGIC_NUMBER checks
Date Wed, 12 Aug 1998 14:01:36 GMT
I like the idea. I dislike (like Dean said, and like you say in the patch)
the duplication of mmn.txt in the comments. One of the two is okay,
but the other must go.

If you create a ap_mmn.h perhaps, which consists of the mmn
change tracking and the defines, that file could be a possible
replacement for mmn.txt ... And it's easier to find the information
than if embedded in the bigger http_config.h

What do the others think?
