   Ryan, do you have a rough sense of this?

   From my own review of the ChangeLog, it looks like there are
roughly about 10-12 major contributions by others (two of whom are
httpd committers).  There are lots of additional people listed,
but these seem to divide up between minor patch contributions,
thanks for bug reports or for testing a bug fix, or thanks for
suggesting a possible new feature.

   Clearly, though, we'll need Ryan to look through and identify
the major contributors.

   I really don't know all the options here, but from what you describe,
it sounds like a faster track to get the IP code clearance done would
be ideal, if possible.  So, a +1 from me if this is feasible.
