Then you needed "1.3" and "2" (or "2.0" for clarity.)  It's not my
preference, but at least be consistent :)

Fair enough.

Isn't "Apache" implicit?  I suspect "HTTP Server" is the easiest entry
(or HTTP 1.3 Server/HTTP 2.0 Server).  httpd implies you are running
on a unix-derivate, Win32 or Netware users might be somewhat lost.

otoh, HTTP Server could be misinterpreted as the standalone Jakarta
which would not be pretty.  Perhaps Pier was right, Apache itself says
a ton.  If we populate a component list under Apache that tells the
rest of the story, nobody would be confused.

What about core, the whole list worth of modules, apr and apr-util,
pcre and xml as Bugzilla "Components"?

Making apr and apr-util as components will allow other apache-projects
to list those same components, and you can query these cross-project.
Jakarta is already using these in some connectors.

Of course, the apr component of APR solves this headache for folks
simply using the library.
