Yes and I have long believed they need to be called to task on this.
The Web Server software "httpd",  hence why the source code released in
httpd-x.xx.xx.  Apache is the Foundation name and is not the project
name, in their way of thinking, are they are going to call OpenOffice
apache3.4 when its released in coming months....
