The move happened on the 31st of May, and my concerns were first  
raised that same day:

The announcement that the move was to take place was declared on the  
dev@apr mailing list:

In reply I asked "Can you point out for me the thread on the dev@httpd  
list when this was decided? Why are we discussing changes to httpd on  
the dev@apr list?". This particular question was ignored.

Further on in the thread I made the following statement:

"Leaving end users to discover that whole APIs have mysteriously  
disappeared without warning or explanation, without those APIs having  
been marked as deprecated, is grounds for a veto. So is the idea that  
another project will tolerate a code dump from one project to another,  
with the corresponding disruption to vendors that will result. In  
addition, APR has been a standalone library, depended on by many  
projects external to the ASF for many years, APR is not part of httpd,  
and code isn't interchangeable between them."

This statement was not challenged.

I eventually formally vetoed the move on 26 June as I warned I would  
do after the disastrous attempt to release v2.3.13 of httpd:

This veto has to date been ignored, and the grounds for the veto as  
stated remain unchallenged by wrowe.
