im am sorry if you misunderstood me, but i always tend (since i do some
db/www development here at) to combine distribution systems, so that
everything is more "standardized". if the core team would use cvsup and
the mirroring sites would use cvsup, it would be possible to have a
certain amount of actuality on the apache source (that would enable us
hackers to get a recent version of the source tree at any time and making
suggestions would be a more flexible process like the current approach
with the release bound gnats database).

i use the freebsd current tree from time to time to check out new things,
and doing this with ftp would be a real pain in the a.. if you kno what i
mean. imho, it would be a nice addition if all the people doing module
development stuff and other core-related things would have a way to always
stay actual on the master source tree. this reduces development time for
a) the core team and b) the developers involved in module programming.
