That's the point.  Had it been left, we might have been fine.  Having been
'halfway' retracted, we were sunk.

I've modified STATUS and propose we tag-n-roll 1.3.22 Monday, around Noon here
in the States.

Gives Greg time to be sure the Expat stuff is dead on (didn't see any note
in Changes post-1.3.21).  Gives us the weekend to decide how to solve manual.

For the Record, I'm:

-1 [also veto] for changing from @@ServerRoot@@/htdocs/manual

+1 for providing <Directory > and Alias from manual to @@ServerRoot/htdocs/manual.

My reason for -1; folks install over existing copies, now they have two conflicting
versions of the Apache docs, one very stale.

My reason for +1; anyone who blasts htdocs/ and starts filling it in hasn't been
using apache very long.  But most folks who point off to /home/www/ or whereever
still might prefer the docs handy.  They can always delete this section when they
change docroot, if they like.

And I AGREE with moving manual out from under /htdocs in the 2.0 tree.  But we
are looking for _least_ surprize for 1.3 upgraders.
