Try checking out apache-1.3 and then httpd-docs-1.3.  The httpd-docs-1.3
checkout should be horribly broken.

The reason is simple.  APR is a brand new project, and a good number of
the Apache developers have never committed code to APR, and have never
expressed interest in touching it.  When we created APR, I didn't want to
weight APR too heavily with httpd developers, because it shouldn't be just
an httpd thing.  To try to accomplish that, I offered access to any httpd
developer who wanted it, and access to any subversion developer who wanted
it.  This gave us a pretty good balance.  You are now in the avail group
for APR, and as soon as you are added to the APR group, you will be able
to commit to it.

You should already have access to the docs.  There have been no other
