Subject RE: [users@httpd] Installing Apache 1.3 on Windows 2003
Date Thu, 22 Feb 2007 20:40:54 GMT
The crux of the matter is that it is **very hard** to support every
version throughout time. I'd argue it's an impossible effort and

Compound every *current* Apache version, every Apache module, every
operating system, every dependent library, and you've got today's
snapshot of a support footprint. Now let's add all of the permutations
those four dimensions throughout time (older versions).

You've got the picture.

The healthy conflict between stability of a system (a snapshot in time
like a Linux distribution) and Apache supportability (today's current
versions) are two separate, but related matters. You add your value and
judgment for how to manage the conflict in your domain. :)

When relying on Apache support from this mailing list, Apache will need
to be current.

if everyone did that, we'd still be banging flints together.
