Subject mod_macro into apache ?
Date Sun, 11 Nov 2012 08:57:34 GMT

Hello devs,

I have developed and maintained a small module called "mod_macro" since 
1998. It is currently available at:

I started it one day as was fed up with copy-pasting configuration 
directives from one virtual host to the next and one directory to the 
next. It includes Define/Use of configuration macro, as well as 
Error/Warning macros. The code is fairly stable (14 years:-).

I would like to donate the code so that it could be integrated with apache 
as a standard module. The main reason for that is that what is done is 
some preprocessing that do not really belong to an external module, as the 
right "configuration time" hooks do not exist, so I have to guess. If the 
module was integrated in the configuration handling of apache, there would 
be no need for "guessing", thus it could be cleaner. Moreover, I think 
that such features should have been included with apache from the start.
