So how do we get anything rolling? Rich and I have cooked up what we see
as an initial roadmap for the project:

General History of Apache
  * Before Apache
  * Why Apache
  * Initial Development Team
  * How Apache became one of the most successful OSS projects to date

Apache httpd Release timeline
  * Release Date
  * Changelog / Release notes
  * Tarball
  * Usage statistics
  * Other Important Release informaton
      Version
      Release Manager
      Security Fixes
      New Directives
      Changed Directives
      State (Alpha/Beta/GA)
      Etc.

Apache Software Foundation History
  * Project Profiles
  * Member Profiles
      Join Date
      First List Post
      Description of work done for project

Subprojects History
  * Convince at least one person from each project to participate and
    maintain history of that project.
  * Short historical description
  * Usage statistics
  * Same project parts as the httpd history projects

Quote collection from development lists
  * Historical comments
  * Funny comments

We've already started on the httpd release timeline and we have
information exchanges over IRC that would fit better in a cvs repository,
so we'd really like to get something moving very soon now.

We've put our uptodate writings on http://stderr.net/history/ for now
and anyone is free to look and give suggestions.

One volunteer has already come forward to help us gather data and we've
compiled some statistics from this mailinglist showing how many posts
each person has made since '95:
