  +    * How should an Apache binary release tarball look?
  +
  +      1. The "old" way where it is just a source release tarball
  +         plus a pre-compiled src/httpd-<gnutriple>. It is created
  +         via the apache-devsite/binbuild.sh script which
  +         - creates the build tree
  +         - creates the src/Configuration file with standard modules
  +         - runs "make"
  +         - renames src/httpd to src/httpd-<gnutriple>
  +         - runs "make clean"
  +         - packs the build tree stuff together
  +         Already known discussion points:
  +         - should src/httpd be renamed or now because a lot
  +           of PRs say they cannot find the httpd :-(
  +         Pros: <gets filled tomorrow>
  +         Cons: <gets filled tomorrow>
  +         Status: Ralf -0
  +
  +      2. The way other projects release binary tarballs, i.e.
  +         a package containing the installed (binary) files.
  +         It can be created by a script which
  +         - creates the build tree
  +         - runs "./configure --prefix=/usr/local/apache \
  +                             --enable-shared=remain \
  +                             --disable-module=auth_db \
  +                             --enable-suexec ..."
  +         - runs "make install root=apache-root"
  +         - packs the stuff together from ./apache-root only!!
  +         Already known discussion points:
  +         - should there be a prefix usr/local/apache in 
  +           the tarball or not because some people think
  +           its useful while others dislike it a lot.
  +         Pros: <gets filled tomorrow>
  +         Cons: <gets filled tomorrow>

       * Redefine APACHE_RELEASE. Add another 'bit' to signify whether
         it's a beta or final release. Maybe 'MMNNFFRBB' which means:
           MM: Major release #
