Subject Re: Splitting APR from Apache.
Date Tue, 24 Oct 2000 17:00:47 GMT
I'm +1 conceptually... this is the right answer.

Until we push to 2.0b1(?) we shouldn't tag out APR 1.0b1 - but I believe on
day this is an ideal proposal.  I'm +1 on giving subversion APR coders
access to
httpd to post fixes till then, if necessary (as long as they follow the
new-httpd list).
APR is still moving a bit fast to set it apart just yet, IMHO.

Let's split APR as an independent cross-team library with it's own lists...
but I'm
-0 on this till immediately prior to rolling 2.0b1.
