Unbelievable this answer, I am stimulating users to use it and with success. I feel, you are
accusing me here and the windows community. No problem, we are continuing to let you know
what issues we discover. In principal up to you how you handle issues  Keep in mind we are
just users, no dev's. 

When you and other dev's should participate at  AL, should be good for the two worlds. 

So no way that the ASF would run a windows site, pity. 

For example I think Mario described the balancer issue quite good, but see no attention for
a long time. More examples if you want. The former ipv6 issues is the winner, years before
some give attention, even we (sob) supplied a fix. Also mod_fcgid has a fix provided by Mario,
also not picked up. AL is providing a mod_fcgid binary with three fixes, so at some point
we can solve things by ourselves. 

I already agreed to 2.4 GA, why wait so long. Not me is delaying. 

2.3 is already in hands/running of at least a few thousands  users for quite some time.  Based
on the number of downloads and the good/bad reports we get.  Special the PHP community is
a big downloader and use.   Enough to see how 2.4 should  go. I think 2.3 is great, some has
bad luck with eg.  no ssl usable.

counterproductive - you're just keeping the code out of the hands of those who are able to
either describe the problem in enough detail that it can be reproduced, or those who could
potentially fix the problem and submit the fix to us.
