Good question!

On a note of pedantry, I believe that we decided that the directories would
be named for the version they would become, rather than the version the patches
apply to. This was to make it easier to deal with branches. So, the directory
should be called for_Apache_1.0.2.

There were several which didn't make it into 1.0.1 for lack of votes, or even
lack of consideration. I think they should be resubmitted for 1.0.2. If they
haven't been already, that is.
