Yes, please let me incorporate the Apache patches to MM directly in my
official MM CVS repository to make sure they are not lost. You should
always send me the patches by E-Mail so I recognize that I have to do

Additionally you could also commit it directly to the Apache CVS
repository and let me pick them up there, _BUT ONLY_ if MM in the Apache
CVS stays on a vendor branch and one really can see the Apache changes
by doing a diff against the vendor branch. I've not the time to diff
particular files to find out the changes manually, of course. Currently
it looks that MM was not imported to the vendor branch with a MM_X_X_X
tag, right? Additionally the MM in APR is not up-to-date (it's 1.0.8
while 1.0.12 is the current version).

So, I would appreciate the following: Remove src/lib/apr/shmem/unix/mm/
from the Apache CVS tree (rm -rf!) and re-import MM 1.0.12 with a
release tag MM_1_0_12 and a vendor (= branch) tag RSE again to this
location. Then apply all Apache changes and every time a MM release
comes out simply re-import it again as MM_1_0_XX to this location and
your changes will magically get merged in. Additionally I can easily see
the Apache changes against my version with a simple "cvs diff -rRSE"
and this way know easily what I should incorporate into MM for the next
release to make your life easier. Opinions?
