Subject httpd24 branch
Date Mon, 18 Feb 2013 07:28:02 GMT

I've been granted commit access to mod_perl (Thanks to Torsten), so I 
want to inform you about my intentions with httpd24 branch.

1. Merge changes from trunk to httpd24 branch.
2. Review my patches from and 
commit them to httpd24 branch.
3. Run make source_scan on my machine and commit the results to httpd24 

Those three steps should allow people to just ./configure and make 
mod_perl with httpd24 sources. They will also make httpd24 branch 
*httpd24 only* and personally I think this is the way to go, because of 
following reasons:

1. Build system (make source_scan) is not good enough to run properly on 
all systems and I'm not going to rewrite it.
2. httpd 2.4 auth API changed in a way where it works very differently 
than the one in 2.2. I will still try to put 2.4 code to proper #ifdefs, 
but it would be really great to just have separate version for 2.4.

When all this is done, I will commit my second patchset which adds 
httpd-2.4 features to mod_perl (mainly new auth API) and fixes lot of 
mod_perl tests.

Please feel free to monitor my work in httpd24 branch and comment it on 
list if you find some problem there. It's my first experience with 
mod_perl and I really don't know everything about it.
