Looks like a reasonable start. I guess rule 4 is down to me :-)

Only thing is, do we really want it in that particular location? Maybe
we should have a docs directory under apache that holds all these

Some other things I'd like to see would be a style guide and a "how to
send us a patch" guide.

On the style guide issue, I started to clean up some warnings yesterday
and the code style varies *A LOT* across different files. This makes it
very hard to see quickly what is happening and in some cases the coding
style is just simply bizarre by most common standards (everyone has
their personal taste I guess). For a group project I think some basic
coding standards would be a good idea.

I've always been a fan of the Berkeley style, I can dig up their
style guide if people think this is a good idea. I'll even volunteer
to clean up the current sources once we agree on a guide.
