True; my response was something of a knee-jerk to a request to change our
standard mode of operation (and expanding permissions to a much larger
group of people) due to what seemed to be a usage-related bug.  Also if
the expectation for the future was that being in the "httpd" group was
going to mean automatic privs on the "apr" group, that mapping would need
to be remembered by anyone creating accounts in the future for httpd
developers, and would most likely not be.  Of course, if apr had been a
codebase under the httpd project, there wouldn't be a problem with
this.  =)

OK, you're now in the unix group "apr".  You can add yourself to the avail
file entry for it if you want commit privs.
