Description (last modified by teor)

We only change src/ext when necessary for integration with tor, or portability across platforms.

There was some confusion about this in #32626, so I'd like to update one or more of the following documents:

  • src/mainpage.md
  • src/ext/README
  • doc/HACKING/CodeStructure.md

We might also want to change our merge policy, but that's a longer process.
