 Subject: Re: general/2757: writing access logs over nfs
 I have reported this to linux-kernel and since apache initially opens
 access logs as root and then fails to write to them, people on
 linux-kernel believe it is an apache problem.
 I have no idea either way.  I'm just reporting it to both sides for a
 developer to figure out.
 I understand that it may be a bad idea to do logs over nfs, but regardless
 of what is a smart thing to do, it should still work.
