Subject update ibrowse to 4.4.1?
Date Wed, 19 Sep 2018 11:37:08 GMT
I need working IPv6 support (for replication) in ibrowse, which is only in 4.4.1. It's a trivial
backport[0] for a single patch, but we have a rather bespoke v4.0.1 copy from 2012, not a
clone, it's via svn  and it's not friendly to rebasing [1]. 

I'm ok to have a crack at this next week, with the end goal of being able to rebase future
ibrowse releases directly in git, possibly with a minimal conversion makefile target.

Any objections to updating it? Has anybody already had a go?

Here's the current non-trivial diff:

Even if you ignore the docs and other build files Bob removed during 4af2d40,  a number of
the genserver states and callbacks have evolved, and the build system is now I
have no idea if our  rebar2 will handle that.

If this means we need to tackle bringing our build system up to rebar3 or or whatever
then I'm happy to plug away on that first.

[1]: I pushed our copy to my skunkwerks/asf branch and github is very annoyed:
and rebase dies in a quiet fire.
