Regressions noted; Build fails at mod_socache_memcache.mak
on Windows command line 'nmake' invocation, fixed in 2.4.x branch
with r1774650. GUI build of Windows works; cmake-provisioned build
works, in light of security fixes, decided this won't-fix defect, is not
a showstopper.

+1 for httpd-2.4.25.tar.gz release.

httpd-2.4.25/srclib/apr-util/xml/expat contains Expat 1.95.7. For
reference, 2.0 derived from 1.95.8 final, which was not a security
release. 2.1.0, 2.1.1 and 2.2.0 have resolved a significant number
of security defects, noted here; http://expat.sourceforge.net/

Note apr-util-1.6.x branch (and apr-trunk) no longer bundles any
expat sources.

-1 to distribute httpd-2.4.25-deps.tar.gz from httpd.
