Would it be possible to have a /contribs_3rdParty hierarchy accessible
from the apache web site and by ftp  comprising:

/unofficialApachebinaries ./AIX ./WIN ./etc etc etc
/contributions  ./packages ./tools ./applications
/contributors  ./members ./commercialsupport ./other

My suggested criteris for inclusion is as follows:

A strong and directly demonstrable relationship and or involvement in the
use, or development, or understanding of Apache and any developments
incorporating or based upon it.

A copy of proposed contributions should be made available to those
responsible for administering it and their decision would be final.

Here I would feel it is perhaps appropriate that third partuy
contributions be signed by PGP -- if it is third party then it is
essential that the source be identifiable. Links to contribs_3rdParty
should contain the caveat that the Apache Group make them available as a
convenience to Apache Users.

As I am new around here it would be inappropriate to offer to administer
the resource but I would certainly be willing to help whoever does.
