I agree with Stefano on this...

Well, actually the HTTPD and APR "rules" (over which I "evaluate" how a good
and well-established community does its releases cycles), freezes the API
before declaring an Alpha release...

For example, APR (which is released with HTTPD) had some small design
mistakes, and to change those, one can't preserve backward compatibility.

This is why pretty soon there will be an HTTPD 2.1 and APR 1.0, not because
of any major improvement, or of any new feature, but because some code will
be backward-incompatible for those API design flaws... HTTPD 2.0 and APR 0.9
will keep going with their design flaws, and are stable, but...

Well, you see my point...

    Pier
