I am *not* working on it. I have no idea who said I was (I do hope it wasn't me!)

All I know is that Jim, David and Roberto are working on it, I don't know how actively but
it is now a priority. 

I believe Jim is involved wearing his ComDev hat so (with his agreement) you can look to him
for those updates. David is wearing his infra hat and Roberto wears his SF hat.


Microsoft Open Technologies, Inc.
A subsidiary of Microsoft Corporation

We reported about apache extras in September and November and both times we were told that
Jim, Ross, David and Roberto were working on it. Some time in October David asked for feedback
on a proof of concept, no news since then.

Can you shed some light on who is driving this atm?
