apache@ has been working diligently for the last 2yrs to realize
www/apache22 as the default.  Now, we are at last nearing completion. We
look to pull the switch within the next month or so pending our final
-exp run by portmgr at .

I would like to thank everyone that helped to make this happen
	ohauer@ (Olli Hauer)
	  for stepping up and finishing the last mile!
	portmgr@ (Pav)
	   -exp runs
	clement@ (Clement Laforte)
	   for his long years of previous service

Once www/apache22 becomes the default, we will actively move to
deprecate and remove support for www/apache20 and related ports (they
already have the notices in them). Then www/apache13* (yes, its EOL
upstream, and unsupported by both then and us).


Finally, we will look to import www/apache24 which just recently saw its
1st ever BETA release.

Some things you should keep in mind as quoted in ports/CHANGES:
AUTHOR: pgollucci at FreeBSD.org

  * APACHE_COMPAT is dead!

  * USE_APACHE=yes is dead!


    You should set USE_APACHE=13|20|22+.  WITH_APACHE option can
    be used to conditionally include support for ANY version of
    Apache based on APACHE_PORT.

Additionally, WITH_MODPERL2 will be replaced WITH_MODPERL.
