Subject Proposed, 2 week termination of mod_authnz_ldap component
Date Fri, 05 Aug 2016 01:26:44 GMT
As previously identified and familiar to all who are working
with httpd trunk, httpd has not compiled against apr trunk
in about 6 years.

It seems time to evict the component from httpd core, given
that it is neither supportable or maintainable. The ABI contract
offered by APR, of no external header dependencies, no binary
dependencies, and all the rest were never observed by the
porters or authors.

Made well aware of this, they chose a flamewar over actually
solving the deficiencies, and in the subsequent years, repaired
none of the defects. Offered an entirely workable httpd-specific
solution to resolve the issues, maintainer vetoed it.

It seems overdue to drop this component from core on trunk,
until it actually functions again.

I'll let this dialog run for 2 weeks.
