One interesting thought for aspiring RMs... checkout.  It's -dev.  Post to
committers@httpd, ask if it's a good tag.  Discover bugs.  Get bugs fixed.

After enough folks are happy for your goals (alpha? beta? gold?) then go
ahead and update the version and tag THAT CHECKOUT.

Nobody ever saw a 2.x.x non-dev version string.  Everything is as safe as
can be... what you tag is what folks said actually worked, and life goes on.

More work by the RM, of course, but we are itching for _good_ tags, and
anyone stepping up to RM 2.x is in it for the long haul...

...great effort Ian!  [no, not sarcastic, it was a noble effort!!!]  :)
