I am not trying to insult anyone, but am simply saying how things look
from here and why I am unhappy with them.  If it did not come across 
as intended, I apologize.  I am sometimes... erm... abrupt in words.

I wasn't able to find any information about any of the above anywhere. 
Could you give me a pointer to a URL where they are discussed?  In
particular, the HTTP-NG Interest Group and exactly what is required to
"join" and if it is possible to simply monitor what is going on to ensure
that the vision for HTTP-NG fits in with my vision for Apache.

My main interest in HTTP-NG is from the network viewpoint and ensuring
that the appropriate issues are taken into consideration WRT network
traffic and interactions and also from the perspective of seeing just what
sort of idealogical view is required in a server to support it properly. 
The fact that it is not yet beyond loose talk or whatever point it may be
at is irrelevant.  By the time it is, it will be too late for anything but
relatively minor corrections.
