I know that httpd's mod_cache had some issues with max-age that were
only recently fixed up.  2.2.5 (next release) should include the bulk
of the fixes for max-age.  2.0.x had the first usable mod_cache, but
some substantial fixes are only in 2.2.x.

Is it possible for vendors (such as Apache) to get access to these
results?  Or, do you have to pay money in order to see the full
output?  I know that Measurement Factory filed some bugs early on
against mod_cache that I fixed, but I think we resolved most (if not
all) of them.

Thanks.  -- justin
