Well, to start, a good document to read may be this one :

The second part may be the word "humility".

The developers of Apache are a pretty relaxed and open-minded lot.
Despite the fact that Apache is used on millions of websites worldwide, 
they are perfectly conscious that it may still contain some bugs, and 
welcome when someone reports a genuine one or proposes an improvement.

But they generally have limited patience with people who claim to have 
found a bug, and say that this "has to be rectified or documented 
properly", when it is obvious from what ditto people write, that their 
own knowledge is limited, to say the least.

They would be much more likely to pay attention, and try to be helpful, 
if that person really explained what they are trying to do, with which 
version of Apache, on which platform, according to which Apache 
documentation document, using which exact configuration directives, what 
they expected, which error they get and asked nicely if they 
misunderstood something, or if this is a problem.

So would you like to try again ?
