Thanks for your quick response. We're still a little unprepared, as we
are still reading through the email archives (8 years of email takes a
while to get through!) but we do have a few questions if you are willing
to humor us.

By the way, "we" is myself and Thomas Eibner.

We'd like to know ...

How did you first get involved in the NCSA HTTPd project, and who else
worked on that with you?

What event(s) resulted in that project's demise, which was the catalyst
for Apache? What event(s) resulted in the project's revival, and then
its later re-demise?

We're trying to track down when the name "Apache" first came into use,
and what the real reasons were for that. The earliest email archives we
have talk about a decision, but post-date the actual discussion itself.
Any memories you may have of that would be helpful.

Do you have a release history of NCSA HTTPd, what changes were in the
various versions? Any email archives from the development?

Do you have the source for any/all of the released versions of NCSA
HTTPd? Of most interest would be the version against which the original
Apache patches were to be applied. But any versions would be

Thomas may have some other questions, but those are the ones that are of
most interest to me right now.

Thanks again for your quick response and your willingness to help in
this project.
