I support Andrea strongly here, AOO need a decision on this, apache_extras
is an essential part of our downloads, and not just "extras".

Personally I think the SF solution is what we as ASF need, unless Infra
prefer to host it on our own hardware, and do not have a problem with the
download bandwidth.

Can I please politely ask the people, who says (or others say) they are
working on this theme, to come to a decision. This seems to be a matter
where a single person could make the decision but we still continue
discussing.
