--- Comment #20 from Jeff Trawick <trawick@apache.org> ---
Enabling OCSP Stapling by default in a generally available release was vetoed
with the following justification:

"The fundamental objection I have to enabling stapling by default in our
GA releases is that it would enable a "phoning home" feature (to the
CA's OCSP responders) as a side effect of configuring a certificate.
This is a setting I consider unacceptable for software published by the
Apache HTTP Server project - the default must be opt-in, not opt-out."

(From message

This concern is not going to be resolved in a Bugzilla issue, so I'm closing it
as WONTFIX.  The dev@httpd.apache.org mailing list is the proper venue if
further clarification or other discussion is desired.
