Subject Re: RTC killed the open source project

What other branches are CTR? 1.3? 2.0?

Dependency on any outside library, APR included, is going to
cause dependency on that library's release cycle. Stagnation
happened after 2.0 was released, however.

On another note, if APR is the problem, then why are we even
talking about branching 2.2 before APR is fixed?
