+1 for beta.  -1 for GA.

Our announcement letter for the beta should clearly state that the server API is stable
and third party module authors can begin porting their modules to this code base and that
the beta is a candidate for GA. If this beta holds up in the field for a few weeks, then
declare it golden. Cliff's comments regarding known problems should go into the
announcement letter too.

We've been running apache.org for months with fewer and fewer problems with each rev. A
number of other folks are sucessfully running httpd 2.0 on production sites. I believe the
prefork beta -will- hold up. One thing that concerns me... Do we have a good feel for the
performance and memory differences between prefork 2.0 and 1.3?  It would really stink to
discover that prefork 2.0 is way slower or has a much bigger memory footprint than 1.3.
Some capacity planning info would be good to have...

Bill
