Subject: Release Standards for Apache

I'm not complaining, I am just curious ...
Why does the Apache project not follow the Linux convention for
releasing official patches?  For example, when you go from
1.3b4 to 1.3b5 there should be two patch sets, patch-1.3b4 and
patch-1.3b5 which would update the sources.

A related question:  Looking at the changes file, it is not clear
what the patch number means.  Do you offer a ref doc that explains
the source-upgrading process?  Better still, is there a master
CVS archive.

(in a nutshell, I am trying to streamline updating through the 1.3
editions ;)

Thanks in advance for your help in this.
