There is only one "version" of Apache; the one released by the 
Apache group.

Stronghold is based on Apache, but it is not a version of Apache.

WebTen is based on Apache, but is not a version of Apache.

Just because Apache is freely available doesn't mean that maintaining
the name, even though it isn't a trademark, is important.  Something
being based on Apache is fine, advertising that is fine.  But
I am concerned when there is no distinction between based on 
and "version of".  If it were a different version of Apache, then
that thing that we put out is also just a version of Apache and
that ain't so.

I don't like being a picky pain, it just comes naturally... sigh.

Something like "Apache-derivative" (as used in the related projects page)
or "Apache based", etc. is better IMHO.
