Name: Brian Behlendorf
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Occupation: CTO (hahaha)
Location: San FranDisco, CA, USA
Comments: Crotchety Old Man who likes to see things done right.
OS Expertise: BSDI 2.0
Contributions: Code-wise I've contributed very little - the authDBM hack which I did for HotWired was the only feature enhancement. I focus more on testing and sanity checking, and I provide the hardware/software/bandwidth to support www.apache.org and the development mailing list.
Name: Ken Coar

OS Expertise: *BSD
Name: Robert Thau
Organization: MIT Artificial Intelligence Lab
Occupation: grad student & random hacker
Location: Boston, Mass., USA
Contributions: Designed the module interface, and the internal data structures which support it, and adapted the first (and somewhat less than perfect ;-) versions of the modules providing functionality equivalent to Apache 0.6, starting from an early version of Rob Hartill's 0.7 work. Also designed and wrote large portions of the current server core from scratch (alloc.c, http_config.c, http_core.c, and portions of other files), again adapting the rest from 0.7, to produce the first versions of what became Apache 0.8/1.0 (then called Shambhala), after further work by the rest of the group. Various other contributions include the original Apache 0.6 content negotiation code, the SpareServers machinery (for better or worse), the experimental (as of 0.8/1.0) dld module and LogFormat support, and the 0.8/1.0 Configuration script.
