Hi Craig,

   Yes, I'm looking forward to replacing the old site with a
redirection to the Apache project site.  I've only left it up until we
have a first Apache release so that users could obtain the latest
builds.  I've revised the old site tonight to emphasize the Apache
mailing list and site.

Thanks,
   Charles.
