Subject Removing old Windows binaries
Date Sun, 27 May 2012 19:16:27 GMT
Since there seems to be no interest out there for Windows binaries
[1], should we stop advertising the old ones which are currently
available? After all, even MS compilers are now freely available, and
it isn't difficult to build mod_perl (or httpd and perl).

The old (5.8.x) builds on
http://archive.apache.org/dist/perl/win32-bin are so far out of date
as to be a bit of an embarrassment now. Simply not providing binaries
looks better than providing hugely out of date ones.

The only thing that does need to be retained is the Win32 port of the
apxs tool, which I recently uploaded a 0.7 version of (with a minor
warnings fix) at http://users.perl5.git.perl.org/~steveh/. Should we
get that moved across to http://archive.apache.org/dist/perl/win32-bin
and remove the old stuff (or at least move it into an 'archive' folder
of some kind)?
