Well, I've posted about PR37402 which is also to revert mod_proxy 
behaviour broken by the changes in 2.0.55 - in this case POST 
*sub-requests*. It's a different situation to your bug. 
PatchAvailable... but I've had no feedback so I can't say what people 
think about it - only that it's working fine on our production servers 
(which do a total of around 4 million page impressions a day).

Sorry to thread hijack, but I would really appreciate it if someone 
could either take some action on the above (and PR11540 come to that, 
which is pretty trivial) - or to give me some advice on how to get 
people interested. A good first step would be getting the patches into 
the trunk I guess.

Should I come into IRC and get a "sponsor"? Or more testers before it's 
considered perhaps? Just continue to plug away on here? Are there 
particular people who do mod_proxy development that I might approach?

Many thanks
