Personally, especially considering the current landscape, I
believe that statement is simply wrong. Saying "just bug fixes"
for 2.4 for some unknown number of months is just flat out
incorrect when we haven't even EOLed it and, in fact, when
2.2 is still available, supported and would be in that self-
same mode.

"actually end enhancements alltogether against 2.4" at this
point is a sure fire way to completely kill Apache httpd and
is not required in the least. You seem to forget that people
can, and want, to do both. We do not, and should not, control
and restrict, without very good, solid, reasons, what people
do on their own free time here.

Just as it is "unwise" or "authoritarian" to "block" work
on trunk, it is the same for 2.4, considering the situation
that we are in *right now*. We need to continue to be relevant
and innovative in 2.4 while we are, at the same time, creating
the next rev. Suffocating one before its "replacement" is
even in pre-alpha stage is simply not needed nor is it a
wise move project-management-wise. It is unfair to our users.

It's like saying you can't have another kid until your youngest
is 18 :)
