Subject Re: Apache 2.0 Status when released
Date Tue, 16 May 2000 20:18:46 GMT

I think we are slowly fixing the problems that are keeping a lot of people
from getting involved with 2.0.  Add that to the fact that we are still in
alpha, and 1.3 is successful for most people, and I do think we are
looking okay.  A lot of people are working very hard to make sure that 2.0
is the best webserver possible, it is just going to take a little while to
finish ramping up.

I don't think we have anything to worry about with regards to 2.0.  I tend
to blow things out of proportion (which anybody who is on this list will
attest to), so always scale back what I saw by at last a factor of two.
