Nope, we'll let the internet speak for itself -

We are nowhere near close enough to the inflection point of that graph to
justify starting the 12 month EOL clock (which has been our traditional
countdown, same as the Tomcat project).

That sounds about right.  I'm personally interested in 3.0 - refactoring on
trunk to clean up the evolution of httpd since 2.0.36.  That was when we
froze MMN majors, so many many bits are now shoehorned into the server in
very awkward manners.  This will make backports to 2.4 more complex,
however.

Focus your energy on anything you like.
