For the record, that is not accurate.  The Fedora httpd package does not 
contain the mpm-itk patch, I have repeatedly refused to add it since it 
makes changes to core httpd which need to go through upstream review. 
Using such arguments to "bully" upstream into taking patches is not a 
great way to build goodwill, IMO.

Somebody has apparently added a completely separate httpd-itk package 
which does include the patch, which is totally dumb IMO, but we (Fedora) 
apparently don't legislate against that in the review process.

Regards, Joe
