I think what we are looking at is the difference between checking out a
branch, v.s. what we do in apache-1.3 (and did in apache-2.0) - checking
out a branch over a branch containing deleted entries.  The apache-1.3
wipe-out is bogus ... but I don't think the same problem would occur with
the new httpd-2.0 repository.

And they do, for the asking (yes, I know you are up to mail msg -2400 and
climbing :-)  It's the APR project's policy to grant nearly immediate
privilages to any Apache contributor who asks.  It's also the policy to
include proven contributors to other projects, a la subversion, although 
the speed at which they are granted access varies on how rigerous that 
other project is in qualifing their own committers.

However, if the user isn't participating in dev@apr.apache.org, they have
no business touching the code base.

Actually, 2.0a8 and prior are all in the old apache-2.0 archive... you 
can't get any old revisions from the current tree structure anyways.

You would be most welcome :-)  But I have a question ... is it possible to
grant the httpd group read access by default to the real repositories so we 
can avoid a bunch of nonsense?  That is, if they are not members of the apr 
group?  This would make it possible to have auto-checkout apr/apr-util.

You have that access, that group was set up as a subset.  
No others as of 2100 hours GMT today.

We should probably point out here that at some point after beta 1, apr and
apr-util will start having their own release point.  After that, the 'living'
version of apr/apr-util may vary from the stable tag released to all projects
(e.g. Apache, subversion, etc.)  So what is today probably won't stay that
way for too long, certainly not after the release of Apache 2.0's final beta.
