I think this is too dangerous. How are you going to decide who has 
contributed enough to be included in the venerable list of those "behind 
mod_perl". Somebody will feel left out and it's a pity.

I suggest we simply say developed by Doug MacEachern with help from 
numerous other developers too many to list here.

On the other hand there is this very outdated file: modperl/CREDITS, 
which if brought up to date could serve as such a document. Here you 
don't have a problem, you list everybody who has helped, and give some 
more description to those who has contibuted significantly more.

It's very simple, when you checkout modperl-2.0 
modperl-docs/src/docs/2.0 are
checked out as modperl-2.0/docs, so they are the same docs. Very cool 
source, zero hassle.

We should do the same for 1.0.

How does this work? This is a cvs magick:

% cat CVSROOT/modules
apachetest-alias   -d Apache-Test httpd-test/perl-framework/Apache-Test
modperl-docs-alias -d docs modperl-docs/src/docs/2.0/
modperl-2.0        modperl-2.0 &apachetest-alias &modperl-docs-alias
