Subject Splitting APR from Apache.
Date Tue, 24 Oct 2000 09:12:46 GMT

Some people at ApacheCon have heard me ask this already, but I want to be
very public about this, so I am asking here as well.  I would like to
split APR out of the Apache HTTPD project.  Obviously, this would still be
an ASF project, but it would be its own project, and it would have to
succeed or fail on its own.

I believe that APR is stable enough to stand on it's own now.  There is
also the fact that subversion is using APR, and it shouldn't have to go
throught new-httpd to talk about APR.  There should be a separate APR web
page, bug DB, and mailing list.

Are there any thoughts about this?  I have some thoughts about how to give
out commit access to APR to begin with.  My basic thought is that I don't
want to weight the APR development list with HTTP specific people, but I
also don't want to limit the people who have commit access.

My basic thought is that commit access starts with nobody having
access.  Anybody who currently has commit access to Apache, is free to ask
for APR commit access, and they will be given it.  This is not a one time
offer.  This offer will also be available to everybody who has commit
access to subversion.

I would ask that people are patient.  I don't expect anything to happen
with this until ApacheCon is over and we all have time to work on
this.  Also, my commit access idea is just that, an idea.  I am perfectly
open to other suggestions for how to migrate this to it's own

Finally, once we have APR as it's own project, all of the people with
commit access will of course have equal input to determine how commit
access is given out in the future.
