[ccing the site-dev list because it looks broader than just apreq]

I'm just concerned that there's a mismatch here.  The test, docs-project,
and apreq projects all have subdirectories at httpd-site/ *and* at
httpd-site/docs/.  Only the latter actually contain any files.  Since
the httpd-site/docs/ directory contains a bunch o' stuff specific to
the HTTP server main project, and its documentation in particular, I think
what happened is that the other projects got cloned from the docs-project,
which wasn't initially set up to share the tree with anyone else.

You're probably not seeing the httpd-site/apreq directory because
you have -P on your cvs update options; it gets pruned since it's

I don't mind all the source files being at httpd-site/xdocs/* (although
I think the 'docs' and 'xdocs' names are now become confusing), but
I think the generated files should be located up one level.  That is,
httpd-site/xdocs/apreq/* produces httpd-site/apreq/*.  Perhaps the
docs and xdocs directories should be renamed to xml and html,
respectively -- then the level difference wouldn't be so weird.  Having
everything (including main project files) live under 'docs' is, IMHO,
a bit confusing and not entirely appropriate.

Any road, until this is hammered out on the site-dev list, I'll
work within the current framework and hook in the apreq project
