If you've been maintaining it independently to date, you could
presumably continue to do so on exactly the same basis if it
were pulled from the official release.  So that's one option.

I see you've posted a patch to dev@apr.  I am, alas, not
competent to review it.  If anyone on the APR and HTTPD
projects has OS2 and the time to review it, maybe this
could be a start to reviving OS2 support, and to your
working with the apache community.

Why not start with a review of the options:
   - maintain it at
   - maintain it independently
and tell us what you think are the pros and cons of
moving from one to the other.

Oh, and do point us at your patches, in case anyone
is in a position to review them.
