In doing so, here's the net effect if we look at dev, bugs, cvs and docs
where the actual "work gets done" so to speak.

http://httpd.markmail.org/search/?q=list%3Aorg.apache.httpd.dev+list%3Aorg.apache.httpd.bugs+list%3Aorg.apache.httpd.cvs+list%3Aorg.apache.httpd.docs

[this ignores any possible resolutions which are created in the spheres
of users@, testers@ and so forth, but those lists existed pretty much
throughout the history of the project].

I agree with Roy that what is missing is innovation, and that we no longer
release early or often enough.  But I wouldn't go as far as calling this
project lethargic ;-)
