[asterisk-dev] C API Deprecation proposal: ast_gethostbyname()

Per the C API Deprecation policy¹ I am proposing the deprecation of
ast_gethostbyame() in favor of the ast_sockaddr family of functions. No
in-tree code currently uses this function. Assuming the function is
deprecated in Asterisk 21 it will be removed in Asterisk 23.

There is already an issue² and PR³ for this deprecation.

Please raise any concerns you have here for discussion.

Kind regards,
