Log:
mod_ssl:
- document the SSLStapling* directives (code committed in

+
+<usage>
+<p>This option enables OCSP stapling, as defined by the "Certificate
+Status Request" TLS extension specified in RFC 6066. If enabled (and
+requested by the client), mod_ssl will include an OCSP response
+for its own certificate in the TLS handshake. Configuring an
+<directive module="mod_ssl">SSLStaplingCache</directive> is a
+prerequisite for enabling OCSP stapling.</p>
+
+<p>OCSP stapling relieves the client of querying the OCSP responder
+on its own, but it should be noted that in its current specification,
+the server's <code>CertificateStatus</code> reply may only include an
+OCSP response for a single cert. For server certificates with intermediate
+CA certificates in their chain (the typical case nowadays),
+stapling in its current form therefore only partially achieves the
+stated goal of "saving roundtrips and resources" - see also the <a
+href="https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-pettersen-tls-ext-multiple-ocsp/">
+"Adding Multiple TLS Certificate Status Extension requests"</a> Internet draft.
