We are upgrading our production servers to RHEL-3 or CentOS. A fair number 
of interchange sites will be migrated in the process.
We have been running mod_interchange for a year or so now and wish to 
maintain site URLs...

Our problem is that most current linux distros ship with Apache 2.0x
Prolonged searching high and low for Apache 1.3x rpm has been un-successful. 
Results suggest 1.3x is almost redundant.

Given that mod_interchange does not work with Apache 2 ...

1. Will Interchange::Link be easy enough to implement so we can continue to 
use our existing mod_interchange style URLs?

2. Will we have to rebuild link programs for every store with makecat?

The best solution would be if mod_interchange would work with current 
apache. How many users on this list would contribute dollars toward having a 
mod_interchange2 version developed? (Kevin Walsh in several previous posts 
suggested he could do this) Is the on-line 'development contribution area' 
still setup? I am more than happy to kickstart contributions if we can get 
this going. An idea of how much will it cost to complete and timeline might 
ne helpful?
