No, that's exactly the problem we have with 1.3 right now. There *are*
people who are willing to backport fixes and even features to the 1.3
tree, it's only a faction of the group here that *doesn't* want that to
happen. I see no reason to close any httpd source tree. If it's just one
person complaining that they don't want to backport their changes, then
they shouldn't do it. This is a volunteer organization, do only what you
want to do, but don't prevent anyone else from have the same abilities.
