Issues with the failure of one testcase or another (mod_negotiation,
mod_include, ssl FakeBasicAuth) have been discussed recently on this list.
Sometimes information about pass rate is discussed when testing a proposed
release tarball.  (And FWIW, it found an OS bug the last time I set it up
with a new Solaris development build.)

There's not much activity, but AFAIK its the only game in town for sharing
httpd testcases.
