I have recently built and packaged httpd-2.4.9 from source provided by
apache.org together with apr-1.5.0 and apr-util-1.5.3. I removed
mod_socache_dc from the httpd.spec file so that the complete build provides
the following packages:

apr-1.5.0-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
apr-debuginfo-1.5.0-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
apr-devel-1.5.0-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
apr-util-1.5.3-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
apr-util-dbm-1.5.3-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
apr-util-debuginfo-1.5.3-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
apr-util-devel-1.5.3-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
apr-util-freetds-1.5.3-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
apr-util-ldap-1.5.3-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
apr-util-mysql-1.5.3-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
apr-util-nss-1.5.3-1.el6.x86_64.rpm

apr-util-pgsql-1.5.3-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
apr-util-sqlite-1.5.3-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
httpd-2.4.9-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
httpd-debuginfo-2.4.9-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
httpd-devel-2.4.9-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
httpd-manual-2.4.9-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
httpd-tools-2.4.9-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
mod_authnz_ldap-2.4.9-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
mod_lua-2.4.9-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
mod_proxy_html-2.4.9-1.el6.x86_64.rpm
mod_ssl-2.4.9-1.el6.x86_64.rpm

Is there any interest in having these offered to the CentOS-6 community for
inclusion somewhere (CentOS-Plus?).

We will have httpd-2.4.6 in Software Collections very soon (when the
SCLs 1.1 for RHEL is released from Beta).

In fact, people can use it now from here:

<a href="https://www.softwarecollections.org/repos/rhscl/httpd24/epel-6-x86_64/" title="https://www.softwarecollections.org/repos/rhscl/httpd24/epel-6-x86_64/">https://www.softwarecollections.org/repos/rhscl/httpd24/epel-6-x86_64/</a>

I think that we should use Software Collections for new packages in
CentOS instead of building replacement packages where SCLs are
available. Thoughts?
