I'd have no objection to this _if_ the Apache Group had a reasonable policy
on giving credit to contributors. As it is, the only people who seem to get
credit are those who have actually done nothing whatever for Apache, but whose
code has been lifted for use in the server.

I know that, in theory, this is going to change, but I've yet to see any
