As it turns out, Jeff had also voted +1, so the vote count was previously;

   +1 (binding): Sander Temme, Paul Querna, Joe Orton, Jeff Trawick
   +1: Gregg Smith
 +/-0: Rainer Jung
   -1: William A. Rowe, Jr.

As my vote was against releasing -deps, and with -deps released, I was otherwise
+1 to the httpd-2.3.4-alpha.tar packages.  Packages are not unreleased once they
have been released to the mirrors, and it's not like I haven't been criticized
for that in the past (thus there are a few -r2.msi packages floating around).

I apologize for perhaps not detailing my objections clearly enough when the
issues were first up, e.g. the way I put them in response to Joe Orton's post,
today.  And I was equally dismayed that the release was shoved at /dist/, but
once that happened, my objections are entirely moot.

Paul, you prefer that I'm not so overbearing and pedantic, while I'd prefer
that you are more attentive to objections that are raised when they are first
raised, and probe for more information to solve them.  There's plenty of room
to agree to disagree, and even more room to come up with agreeable resolutions.

If you need fewer emails, and faster bandwidth, I'm always happy to pound through
an entire disagreement with anyone on the irc httpd-dev channel in realtime, and
bring our thoughts back to this discussion list.

Anyway, 2.3.4 is done and waiting for your announce text, and is in no real
hurry for that message since many of the people who would further review that
alpha follow this list.  But it would be helpful on the web site and especially
in the /dist/ directory, for people who stumble upon 2.3.4-alpha and wonder what
exactly it is.
