you said httpd but looked at rpm :)

Also, the first batch of srpms is now on the seed machine, should start 
going public in about 8 - 12 hours ( this is [a-l]*.src.rpm ). The rest 
I'll move in first thing on Wednesday morning.

Reason why the srpms are not in the tree at release time : it saves us 
all about 4.3 TiB of data to mirrors pre-release.
