[ANN] apache_1.3.22 package available for setup inclusion

Hi list,

I have put up my recent work on the Apache HTTP server for inclusion
to the official Cygwin setup.exe distribution to:

The setup.hint:

sdesc: "The Apache HTTP (Web) Server"
ldesc: "The Apache Project is a collaborative software development 
effort aimed at creating a robust, commercial-grade, featureful, 
and freely-available source code implementation of an HTTP (Web) 
server. The project is jointly managed by a group of volunteers 
located around the world, using the Internet and the Web to

BTW, this Apache for Cygwin port is maintained by me at the ASF
(Apache Software Foundation) and is working very stable for several
months now.

The source tarballs includes the latest patch I send in for the
current 1.3 cvs branch and hence users may undo the patch using the
included diff file (as setup.html requires it to).
