As far as I understand Lokahi tried to manage both, the Apache Webserver 
and Apache Tomcat. Its goal was real enterprise type management, so e.g. 
it put all configuration data into a database. That's a huge step from 
were we are now (Tomcat manager webapp) and in the Lokahi domain the 
"user" community is typically operations people who are often relatively 
far from being a developer and contributing.

Trying to aim at the middle ground might trigger more interest. Being 
able to remotely administer, but maybe not using a very high level 
configuration management. That's something one could also discuss on the 
users list.

AFAIK one of the problematic parts of the old admin webapp was getting 
storeconfig into a working and maintainable state. In other words: how 
does one correctly save changes applied to a configuration by a console?
