I would like to say (after running a server for over 2 years using Apache
for a large part of that) that I certainly hope you do NOT compromise the
quality of adherance to the standards simply because AOL has made a
mistake. If 40%% of the sites out there truly are running Apache then let
AOL fix their problem or let them lose their clients.

I personally will do without the AOL traffic for now... Please do it right
rather than acceding to a 800 pound gorilla who actually NEEDS our sites
to be visible to their paying clients...

Patience? Apache is the #1 server and comes out with upgrades faster than
any commercial product in the universe. It is a pleasure using Apache...

Sorry to spam your mailbox, but just wanted you to know that I think the
Apache team is doing a great job...
