Hi, y'all,

Sorry, if I have missed this discussion, but what is the status going to 
be of 2.0 then.  Will any patches be backported into 2.0's mod_auth_ldap 
to fix various problems, or should I ask folks to hold off on a 
migration from 1.3 to 2.0, until we have 2.2 stable?  (The migration 
being for made for the use of mod_auth_ldap).
