Again, the common-mailbox-on-hyperreal method would work best.  I'll set 
it up if I don't hear complaints within the next 24 hours - true, it 
would only mean that those with hyperreal accounts can answer that mail, 
but if you're serious enough about apache development that this is 
something you're willing to do, I'm certainly willing to give you an 
account to help out.

As for a public support "mailing list" - I oppose it on the basis of sheer
overload (too many subscribers, lots of bogus traffic), something that would
be much better dealt with in c.i.w.p or through direct mail.  However, as 
a compromise I will support setting up a moderated "apache-announcements" 
list that apache users can subscribe to, and one of us posts to on a 
semi-regular basis to keep people informed of the project and such.
And Randy, I know you offered to host a list like that, but I just have 
the feeling it's a lot more work than you want to do (and more load than 
you may want to put on one of your machines) to support a fully public 
apache-support list.  The traffic will probably be such that I won't read 
it - I can barely keep up with new-httpd and still respond 
intelligently.  :)
