hey all,
    so i just read up on the thread regarding this decision.  i am not 
on the openBSD list currently.  maybe someone on the nycbug list can 
explain in better detail/clarity what the OBSD team finds wrong with the 
ASF 2.0 license?   From my perspective, as a sysadmin, there are some 
pretty interesting features in httpd 2.x that i was looking forward to.  
What I gathered from the thread was aside from the license issues, the 
httpd team was not very receptive in accepting patches from the obsd 
team.  If that's true that's kinda lame :(

here is a link to a web-based thread of the discusion:
