-=head1 NAME
-
-mod_perl 2.0 renaming
-
-=head1 Description
-
-This document discusses the effects of the decision to rename
-parts of the mod_perl API.
-
-=head1 Synopsis
-
-During a sequence of release candidates leading up to
-the official release of mod_perl 2, 
-in late December, 2004 there was considerable discussion
-regarding the choice of namespaces for the 2.0 API.
-The main concern expressed was that some of the
-C<Apache::*> modules used in mod_perl 2 had the same names
-as those in mod_perl 1. After a lively and, at times,
-heated debate, a proposal was made to rename parts of
-the mod_perl 2 API - see the thread at
-L<http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?t=111135037100002&r=1&w=2>.
-This proposal was subsequently voted on and then adopted.
-
-=head1 Changes
-
-The main changes involved in this renaming are as follows.
-
-=over
-
-=item *
-
-Rename all C<Apache::*> modules to C<Apache2::*>, save for
-the following exceptions:
-
-=over 4
-
-=item *
-
-The C<Apache::Test*> modules in the C<Apache-Test> distribution
-are unaffected by this rename.
-
-=item *
-
-Constants under the C<Apache::*> namespace,
-such as C<Apache::OK>, are now called as C<Apache2::Const::*>
-(for example, C<Apache2::Const::OK>).
-
-=item *
-
-Constants under the C<APR::*> namespace,
-such as C<APR::SUCCESS>, are now called as C<APR::Const::*>
-(for example, C<APR::Const::SUCCESS>).
-
-=back
-
-=item *
-
-C<Apache-E<gt>request()> has been renamed to 
-C<Apache2::RequestUtil-E<gt>request()>.
-
-=item *
-
-C<Apache-E<gt>server()> has been renamed to 
-C<Apache2::ServerUtil-E<gt>server()>.
-
-=item *
-
-Rename C<mod_perl.pm> to C<mod_perl2.pm>
-
-=item *
-
-Discontinue the practice of installing mod_perl in a
-relative F<Apache2> subdirectory, so that the use
-of C<Apache2.pm> to adjust C<@INC> is no longer needed.
-
-=back
-
-Concurrent with these changes, a decision was also made to
-refuse to install mod_perl 2 in the same Perl tree as any
-installed mod_perl 2 package of version prior to 1.999_22.
-
-=head1 Effects
-
-The mod_perl developers did not take lightly the effects of
-changing the API at such a late stage in the development cycle.
-For most users the change to the new API should be relatively
-straightforward:
-
-=over
-
-=item *
-
-Before installing mod_perl 2, either remove an earlier
-mod_perl 2 installation (prior to 1.999022), or else choose
-to install the new version in a different area. To remove
-enough of a prior installation of mod_perl 2 in order to
-satisfy this requirement, one can do, on Unix,
-
-  % find /usr/lib/perl5 -name 'Apache2*' -exec rm -rf {} \;
-
-where F</usr/lib/perl5> is the top-level root of your Perl tree.
-Note that this will also remove any 3rd party Apache modules
-installed under an F<Apache2> subdirectory. In many situations 
-you would want to do this, as such modules will need porting to the
-new API. However, if there are modules under this location
-that you want to keep, you can use
-
-  % find /usr/lib/perl5 -name 'Apache2*' -exec ls -lR {} \;
-
-to list the files under this tree.
-
-For Win32 ppm users, the command
-
-  ppm> remove mod_perl
-
-within the ppm shell will remove an installed C<mod_perl>
-ppm package.
-
-=item *
-
-If building mod_perl 2 from source, the C<Makefile.PL> argument
-of C<MP_INST_APACHE2> is no longer supported.
-
-=item *
-
-Replace the use of
-
-    use Apache::SomeCoreModule;
-
-in a script or module by
-
-    use Apache2::SomeCoreModule;
-
-Similarly, an Apache directive
-
-    PerlModule Apache::SomeCoreModule
-
-in an F<httpd.conf> file should be replace by
-
-    PerlModule Apache2::SomeCoreModule
-
-A similar substitution from C<mod_perl> to C<mod_perl2> should
-be made in similar places.
-

-
-Replace the use of constants C<Apache::*> by C<Apache2::Const::*>
-and C<APR::*> by C<APR::Const::*>.
-

-
-Remove any occurrences of

-    use Apache2;
-
-in a script or module, as well as
