Subject Re: [PATCH] friendlier MODULE_MAGIC_NUMBER checks
Date Wed, 12 Aug 1998 22:32:21 GMT
Putting the mmn.txt inside the source code is the right thing to do.
I too would prefer that it be in a separate header file with the
define that http_config.h would include, since the present one is
too chock full of unrelated stuff.  Actually, I'd prefer it if both
the MMN and release version (now in httpd.h) were moved to an
ap_version.h file.

However, I'm not keen on splitting the magic number.  It seems like
a good idea in general, but it is the kind of thing I'd only expect
in a major point release.  In other words, I'd rather just consider
the frequent binary incompatibilities a "known problem" for 1.3.x
and solve it in 2.0.  I wouldn't veto it, but that's my feeling.
