Actually, a beta, but of course!  You ask for status, we point you to
status :)  Why would we revert to alpha anyways?

Nothing substantial changed since the last release vote passed, only;

so if anyone is itching to fix this bug, I'm ok with another beta.

I see you just resolved the FTPLimit schema.  The .h's just need to be
corrected in order to bless this as release [it doesn't stop us at httpd
core, but I'd like to set a slightly higher bar for public/private APIs ;-]

We probably aught to resolve the low-numbered port binding which I believe
I know how to do without offending sensibilities [after reviewing the
voluminous complaints against mod_watchdog's initial design and behavior
within the parent process.]  If we overcame that unexpected restriction
(it would be sad to ship a ftp /release/ without addressing ports 22/21 ;-]
then I see no reason for this not to undergo a 1.0.0 release vote.
