Rename doc/HACKING/design members to reflect current architectural division

Reviewer: teor Sponsor:


The original tor-guts.git document pre-dated the source code re-organization when we divided things into src/lib/*, src/core/*, src/feature/*, and src/app/*.

We'll want to edit the documentation to correspond to reality. But before we do that, we'll want to rename and divide the modules so that they have the right names. (Git handles edits better if there are no edit/split/move conflicts.)

I think we have the following general headings:

  • Overview
  • Parts of the code
    • Lib
    • Core
    • Features
    • App
  • Data-flow discussion
  • ... ?

I'd like a discussion of data flow and event flow.
And something about how we test (if that belongs here).
What's remaining after that?

Eventually, I'd like an explanation of config and control and how they are split between modules. (But that might be our target design.)

I'm going to defer action on the final filenames here, and plan to rename things a lot as I go along. I don't think I can get a final organization any time soon.

Instead of taking this route, we are reintegrating the contents of doc/HACKING/design into our doxygen.
