How about some Apache t-shirts? This reminds me of the discussion we
had some month ago about Apache t-shirts...

But here are some thoughs on additional questions:

>  Do you currently use the "suexec" functionality in Apache?

If not, do you use any other cgi wrapper?
>  Which non-standard modules do you currently use in your production 
>    web environments?
>  (include, proxy, rewrite, usertrack, expires, headers, mime_magic,

[include is activated by default, and dld, cern_meta, digest and auth_* is
missing in the list]

Are there any standard modules you DON'T use?
(env, log_config, mime, negotiation, include, autoindex, dir, cgi, asis, imap
 actions, userdir, alias, access, auth, setenvif/browser)

Do you use any self-made modules or patches?
(Category: URL manipulation, authentication, server-side scripting,
           content handling)

>  Which related packages do you use with Apache? (list major add-ons)

[How about an extra text field here so people can add 'other' modules?]

It was bundled with my operating system.


Is Apache the first server software you are using or have you
upgraded from an other server?
If yes, what server was it? (Netscape, Microsoft, Sun, CERN, NCSA, other)
