That's fine.  I interpret 'our release' as httpd.  If httpd is ready,
it should keep moving, and the -deps package, while nice for GA, really
isn't necessary for alphas IMHO.

Agreed.  And that falls on you or I also, of course.  Expecting that
we can agree to a release this week, sorry that overwork and lack of
vision contributed to my dropping the ball on releasing apr-1.4 (not
apr-util-1.4 where many 'questionable additions' reside).

And we voted on that and released it.  After about a year of that chaos
it evolved to apr releasing their own releases.  That's bootstrapping.

It was part of the same package.  You've split this into two packages,
so I truly can't discern your argument that '-deps' is mandatory for
httpd to even ship.

Finally, I have yet to see any feedback on the pcre mandatory dependency
issue.  Comments?
