httpd-2.0/srclib/apr-util/include/.  In general I think this should be

We put that sort of commentary in the commit log rather than in the code.
We try to avoid both static buffers and malloc/realloc/free wherever
possible, using pools instead.  We have relatively well-defined style
guidelines.  See and .

After review, if one of the committers approves it, that person will
commit it to the tree.
