Pier recommended the split based on prior experience.  Tomcat has
separate Tomcat3 and Tomcat4 projects.  I just followed the 
convention already in place.

I'll remove "HTTPD 2" for now and if we want to add it back in
later, we can.

It needs to be short.  Apache httpd?  In fact, "Apache HTTPD 2" is
the longest project name in Bugzilla right now.  Pier recommended
"Apache," and I don't like that as it isn't specific enough.  And,
I think if we put just "httpd," no one would know what it was.

I'm not familiar with bugz@ or what you are talking about.  I think
Pier could setup bugzilla to send reports to the bugz@ ML (to any
arbitrary address really), but there won't be any way to change the
data via mail.

That's an infrastructure@ issue, and nothing I have control
over.  But, yes, it's a good point, however there's nothing I can
do about that.  The Jakarta people have used this URL without any
problems though for quite a long time.  -- justin
