Welcome.  =-)  There are no stupid questions...

Are you looking for something that does more functional testing or load

There are currently two facets of the httpd-test repository:

- A Perl-based suite of tests that will test the functional aspects of
  the Apache server.
- A C-based load tester (flood) that will stress the server with
  dynamically-generated data and user profiles.

We are open to any other ideas/projects you might have.

Submit patches and stuff.  We're generous about giving commit access to
this repository, so as soon as you submit one test, we'll probably break
down and give you access.  -- justin
