Subject Re: [RELEASE CANDIDATE]: mod_perl-2.0.6 RC3
Date Tue, 10 Apr 2012 18:50:40 GMT
We discussed all this when 2.0 was first released- we
should track the httpd API as faithfully as possible,
and perhaps bump to 2.4.x when we need to break
back-compat with the 2.0.x line.

CPAN can't support both lines so we're stuck going
with thelatest version whenever we drop stuff on CPAN.


IOW we don't need to rush to support 2.4 as it will
introduce pain for existing users.  Aim for another
3-6 months min before we start targetting that platform
is what I suggest.
