Thanks brian. well said enough.

Of course I do always want to try to suggest *improvements*
of the apache servers. But, perhaps my mails would be moderated,
in a sense. -- often can not be reached to you -- perhaps.
-- Yes -- closed and moderated (BY UNKNOWNED) list.

Of course I can guess the *burden*s of the moderators in *.apache.org
land. -- because I experienced the moderators of ***@*.apache.org
lists. (for experiment -- nice experiment it was!)

Well -- and I found a solution for reduce the spam mails
coming to *.apache.org lists . I believe it that brian's 
spamwatch is/was VERY nice and I could -- wanted to try to ENHANCE it.
(well -- icarus and minotaur era, IIRC)

I had an *VERY* itch to help you guys. But I do not have a karma
for apmail and root. This prevented me from doing the *appropriate*
infrastructural matters in apache.org.


I know it that what would be the (infrastructural) problem in
apache.org land. And my *native-language* is not English -- peculiar
language in apache land -- as is so called Japanese, multi-byted.

Simple -- my itch is -- * want to help GENIUS developers all over the
world *. Discussing infrastructural matter would be *perhaps* really
Rather --  I'd like to *design* ideal infrastructure for the genius guys
in order to give the full *play*s in the IT lands -- java, perl, c++,
tcl, xml.  -- Odd?
