the branch has been changed to 2.4.x:

Please notify me when it should be changed again.

However, you can set up your local tracker using the basic 
abi-compliance-checker tool in order to not to depend on the online 

In this case you need XML descriptors of two library versions:









{RELPATH} in this XML-descriptor is the path to the install tree of 
httpd and it's replaced by the -relpath1 and -relpath2 options of the 
tool when you compare two versions of the library (the reference version 
and the latest one):

$> abi-compliance-checker -l httpd -old descriptor.xml -new 
descriptor.xml -v1 2.4.9 -v2 2.4.x -relpath1 {INSTALL_TREE_2.4.9_PATH} 
-relpath2 {INSTALL_TREE_2.4.x_PATH}

You can also create a "dump" of the library reference ABI version (say, 

$> abi-compliance-checker -l httpd -dump descriptor.xml -relpath 
{INSTALL_TREE_2.4.9_PATH} -vnum 2.4.9

And then create ABI dump of a new version and compare it with the 
reference one:

$> abi-compliance-checker -l httpd -dump descriptor.xml -relpath 
{INSTALL_TREE_2.4.x_PATH} -vnum 2.4.x
$> abi-compliance-checker -l httpd -old ABI_2.4.9.dump -new ABI_2.4.x.dump
