Did you not see rpluem's response and my response to it? Did you not  
see fuankg's addition to the Netware build? I count two people so far  
who cared enough to contribute, and that's just in the last 24 hours.  
Why did you not join these discussions?

There is no greater disincentive to working on the httpd project than  
this kind of response. Making it worse, instead of making a case  
yourself, you simply solicit others to make your case for you. When a  
potential contributor reads this thread and others like it, all they  
see is that their contribution is not welcome here, they quietly  
unsubscribe and the httpd project suffers as a result.

I am confident that if multiple developers believe it shouldn't be,  
then those multiple developers will speak for themselves. It is in  
extremely poor taste to actively try to solicit developers to speak  
out against somebody's contribution. Let the community speak for itself.
