Subject Re: Apache 2.4 adoption

How many Linux distros ship httpd 2.4?

Fedora 18 is their first release to include httpd 2.4.  Since Fedora is often an early adopter
of new releases, I expect 2.4 hasn't trickled down to other distributions yet, e.g. RHEL,
CentOS.

It looks like 2.4 has only got as for as Debian experimental:
http://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=apache

Ubuntu haven't adopted it yet: http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=apache

Of course the next question could be why have distros not adopted 2.4, is it just a matter
of time or are there other factors?
