I will put out a new release within the next day or two.

I was under the impression that you were using the CVS code.

Usually, if there is a problem, *someone* mentions it.  I find it
disheartening that no one has written about this...  I mean, does
anyone give a shit?  If not, I have better things to do with my time.

Mikhail, thank you for letting me know about this.  The problem has
been corrected in the CVS code, which has correct documentation, and
will be released soon.

As far as a regression test, we do have one, but it needs to be
extended.  If you have experience with writing testing code, your
contributions would be more than welcome.  I do not have this
experience myself.

The technical problem is that to really exercise everything, you need
to launch Apache in some kind of controlled environment...  Ideas on
how to do this?

What kind of web access can you provide?  The ASF doesn't really have
any provisions for doing mailing list archives, other than flat text
files, which aren't of much use.  What I'd like to see is a
searchable, threaded archive.  But even if that's not possible,
anything is better than what we have now.
