apr tends to grow in fits and spurts.  So you may see the list quite quiet
for a time (-especially- when alot of the main contributors are hiding over
at httpd, svn or other projects trying to get to some end goal).  On the
other hand, prepare for 20-30 mail deluge some afternoon, you've been warned :)

The documentation can -certainly- use improvement, mostly from the perspective
of 'new to apr, how do I get started?' along with some of the more cryptic bits
of collective knowledge.

Glad to hear it looks suited to your project!

Documentation discussions do belong on dev@apr, since the docs need the
eyeballs of the authors who designed the interfaces.  Thank you for the
offer, as all contributions, code, docs, beer are welcome.
