Sounds sane. Even though there might only be small bugfixes it's a 
good thing to release rather often to reduce the risk of having so 
many new fixes and features that we trigger some weird bug in each 
release that makes it unusable.

I suspect that this should really affect APR too since we have 
examples of bugs that's fixed in APR trunk (or newer releases), an 
example would be that for httpd 2.2.8 the included APR is broken wrt 
bucket brigades and LFS on 32bit platforms...

+1, including the concerns that 3 months might be a more suitable goal
     for releases (meaning that tagging 2 months after the last release
     seems reasonable :) and that we should not write this in stone but
     be flexible when needed.

  I'd love to, but I'm too young for that stuff.
