Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache 2.2.6, 2.0.61 and 1.3.39 release candidate tarballs for review
Date Thu, 06 Sep 2007 20:20:57 GMT
Ummm hrmm:

   "A hurry backport is causing this and there is hardly
    tested in real live. Hopefully ASF comes with a patch soon. "

So you know what's causing this? Please point out the exact
"hurry backport" so we can look there.

And again, WHAT OTHER 3rd party modules are having problems??
Can you provide ANY FURTHER information other than cryptic "its
not working" messages followed by "ASF hates Windows users"

If we *knew* what the problems were, we'd try like heck to fix
'em. I know Bill looked hard and long, but had no luck,
mostly because the amount of real concrete data was woefully
