I'd be willing to help mentor.

A few ideas:

in APR:

  - Improve the build system so that it can generate win32 project
files automatically, instead of requiring us to maintain them by hand.
 It also might be nice to allow generation of makefiles on win32, so
we can build via command line tools instead of requiring visual
studio.
  - Add a logging API, abstracting the differences between syslog,
win32 event logs, and basic file backed logs.  This project has the
potential to involve working with the Subversion project as well,
since it has a need for such an API.

in HTTPD:

  - Extend the mod_proxy_fcgi code so that it can manage its own
worker processes, rather than requiring them to be managed externally.
 Would most likely require a bit of refactoring inside of mod_proxy as
well.
