As described by Ken?  Once again, what would he have to do with that?

Kevin... I believe I've generally treated you civilly... Read the end of my
previous response above.  A good number of non-combatants to these 'gzip wars'
are really disgusted with the language and attitude on list.  Much of that
has turned on your comments and hostility.

In accepting a contribution, the submitter is generally expected to support
the submission, ongoing.  Everyone here enjoys working on or with Apache, or
they would find another server.  Even those paid to work on Apache enjoy it,
or they aught to find more suitable employment.

Nobody has the stomach to put up with the personal slams that regularly
emanate from your keyboard, even (perhaps especially) when directed at other,
productive members of this community.  As accepting your contribution would
indirectly subject all list subscribers to your 'support', such as it is, there 
was not one vote for said 'alternative' in the STATUS file, 2 1/2 months after 
Cliff made note of it.

Sad it came down to that ... is this damage reparable?  Not for mod_gzip, 
IMHO, there is too much lingering hostility, ergo caution.  For you personally, 
in relation to the project list?  Well, that entirely depend on future messages 
emanating from your keyboard.
